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.



Don't talk to me. Seven games left and must win five. Minny, Buffalo (oh, gee did anyone see how they worked Tortorella's hotshot lines last night?), freakin' Habs (meh), Bolts and one of Bs, Rangers and (oh would you look at that) the Panthers. Oh, sure. Got me a big ol' oil painting of THAT happening. How do you blow a three shot lead? Yeah, you're tired with a five game road trip and all that, but here's the thing. You're being PAID ridiculous amounts money, 67 million this year. And, what? Three %$#@ing points just vanish and you get smoked in OT? Again?! You have (...wait...and I love the guy and all--my favorite player, actually) old man Knuble CRASHING THE NET?! H-T-F-U. Or give Dale some skates.
