Satiric vampire and zombie horror with a gender-bending twist.
Teri-Louise Kelly’s foray into supernatural fantasy cum black humour is a deviation many had long expected. The dark side of this genre and gender bending author has long been known. But here, in A Double Pass to Aberration we witness Kelly toying playfully with vampires and zombies in alternative ways.
In the first tale, The Mortician’s Kiss, Kelly adheres to the traditional Stoker formula of old houses, disease, wily cannibal doctors and blood-sucking countesses but throws in lesbianism as inducement.
In the second, Standing on a Bridge with Richey Edwards, Kelly leaps into the present, the present of council estate tedium, pop culture and ridiculousness; juxtaposing the reincarnation of the Manic Street Preacher’s suicided lead singer with bathtub existence and life on the dole.
Both different, both enchanting, Kelly’s mind warp continues to expand along a bent curvature.
Try her and see for yourself, push the door, begin, after all, the first step is not the hardest, the last is.

About the Author
She comes from someplace else. She was once a petulant little boy. She has been a dominatrix. She has pole danced in Soho, London. She is a five book (tree) author and a six book e author. She has been described variously as a storm trooper, a femme fatale and a gutter wrestler. Her work induces vibrating polarity and she is a gender and genre crosser. Her poetry and improvised spoken word has a caustic reality and a blatant sexual depravity. She blasphemes conventionality and bridges the gaping chasm in a flawed binary system.
“In other times in other places there were always writers. Writers fill a need, although, quite what that need actually is has never been fully determined. Mainly, writing is just a bunch of words on a page, or as it is now – on a screen. There are hundreds of thousands of words and all bar about six hundred or so are absolutely useless, which is why I don’t use them.”
