KIERAN SHEA’s fiction has appeared in dozens of venues including Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Thuglit, Dogmatika, Word Riot, Plots with Guns, Beat to a Pulp, Crimefactory, and Needle: A Magazine of Noir ...as well as in some beefy-looking anthologies most of which will make you question the tether of his shiny, red balloon. To his self-deprecating astonishment he's also been nominated for the Story South’s Million Writers Award twice without sending the judges so much as a thank you note. He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books. Kieran divides his time between 38°58′22.6″N- 76°30′4.17″W and 39.2775° N, 74.5750° W.
A Little Birdie Told Me....
Yep. Like most I get the reading recommendations from all places. In the end, I kind of make up my own mind though. But this one, sent by a little birdie, wow. Freakin' book saved me from going bananas when I was trapped in a hotel for three days because of the snow that ate New Jersey last week. In all seriousness, this is the sort of book that will save your life and renew your focus on the things that matter. Blew me right the hell away and gone. Don't think I took a breath for the last forty pages. Read it.
