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.



Jeeze, can't believe I missed this. Cam Ashley is one of the greatest champions of the noir scribbler genre, a stand-up writer, chum, and live-wire crack-up as well. He actually accepted a story of mine for next month's issue at CRIME FACTORY. Go now, read all about the man from Oz. (PS: For the record, I'm a big fan a Vegemite and Cam knows case you think I was poking fun at Australia. Go through at least two jars a year and it's hard to come by state-side.)
