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 ...as 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.

SHADE down in the Village. Sunday - May 26th...6-9PM...a crackerjack lineup poised to read some of the nastiest crime fiction you can imagine. I mean, I heard rumors of behemoth talents cued up to read, but now it looks like some truly gargantuan heavies will be making the scene including Baker, Tafoya, and Dr. Ash-Campbell-look-a-like, Bazell. Of course, somehow by the grace of God I'll be reading too even though my debut novel doesn't hit the stores for close to a year, but that's another story entirely. Who knew publishing took so long? Right now I plan on shaking the standard crime fiction fare with a wee sci-fi thievery yarn. Stoked and honored to be reading. Should prove to be more fun than a barrel of monkeys...very, very sick monkeys. Onward.
