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.


Nik's Trip

A while back Baltimore writer Nik Korpon asked me to submit a story for Rotten Leaves Magazine. At the time it seemed like a good break from this WIP that is driving me bonkers like a twisted game of Whack-a-Mole. Man, I hate playing Whack-a-Mole and this particular game is driving me off a cliff. Anyway, it's up. Thanks, Nik.
