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.



That's it, people. Crankin' those tunes and streamin' headlong into the warm bath of whatever summer holds, in other words, my version of radio silence. Think primary elements (cool SE winds, frosty beverages, neglected friends, big books, silly kite flying, skee-ball, etc.) and you are on the right track. May I recommend that you get some, because there's only one ending to all of this, and you damn well know it. Later.
