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.


There Are Days When I Feel Like Randy

Pretty much been a fan of Mr. Newman for a long time, ever since I saw the Shepard play SEDUCED that feature his songs. I think I went out and bought "Sail Away" right then and there the very next day. Still play the extremely brief album straight through every once in a while. Back before "Short People" "I Love L.A." and all that goofy soundtrack business. Back when a guy at a piano singing his bloody heart out still meant something. If you get a chance today it might be good time, given today's news, to take a pull on the quirky, black comedic track "POLITICAL SCIENCE", y'know what I'm sayin'? Onward.
