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.


Another Cup of Bitter Noir: Morphine & B'con

Hey, this little diddy is going out to all those Bouchercon pals who are gunning the interstates, asking for more pretzels off the drink cart, and wandering around the convention lobby with bad thoughts on their minds. Safe travels, people, wherever you're from and please...dig Cleveland and the B'con for all it's worth. I sure wish I could, but I've been sidelined again.
