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.



"So expect the reputation-management companies (Facebook pre-eminent among them) to be reminding us of the risks of unhedged sociality. It’s not prudent or profitable to be associating with people in the wild, with no tools with which to contextualize them — or tools to exercise your power to contextualize them and their data to make it all work for you and your quantified reputation. Friendship is too valuable a resource to spend on unworthy people." HERE
