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.


POYO! Probably

Probably you don't venture near the comic book store too often.  I don't know, maybe you do. But if you're feeling blue and want to dip your feet into the black comical team genius of Layman/Guillory, may I suggest picking up this "one-shot" spinoff issue of their enormously successful series CHEW.

Strong language and, yeah, kind of sticky on the blood-side of the equation so mind the kids--but wow. A superhero/cyborg/secret agent rooster?

The world could use one.
