Well, this took some guts to make given the present political climate in France. I still recall the events that this was based on and what a friend who worked in the intelligence community said to me when it went down. "Those French, man," he said, "they don't f**k around." Brought back the usual throbbing memories of our own clear Tuesday in hell, and then I started to feel mad too. Everybody recall Condi and company saying they never expected someone to use planes as weapons? Boy, what total horseshit, huh? Onward.
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.
