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 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.


I swear, I'm reading it for the stories and the Buscemi interview...

Of course you could always take the safe route, hit that barbershop downtown that's been around forever, you know the one. No kids, no blow dryers, old stooped Italian guys with the hot towel shaves and straight razors. Rumor is Pelecanos used to get his hair cut there, but that's just a rumor. Or you can man up and buy it. Cold crime fiction built for speed. Way to go, Frank Bill.
