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.


From the Great and Powerful Oz: Crime Factory

Down under, it's been a crazy, hazy, weather-intense summer. Despite this the boys at Crime Factory have been busy. The new "bonzer" issue (really? number 12?--wow!) is up, and it's ready for your immediate downloading enjoyment. Coincidentally, I'm in this issue with fellow Team Decker writer-scoundrels, Frank Wheeler, Jr. and M.C. Funk. Great men and generous gentlemen both. Get some. Onward.
