Acclaim for this Author

'Chris Kelso is a writer of almost intimidating intelligence, wit, and imagination. On every page there is evidence of a great mind at work. Just when you're wondering if there are actually still writers out there who still feel and live their ideas out on the page, I come across a writer like Kelso, and suddenly the future feels a lot more optimistic. One calls to mind Burroughs, and Trocchi's more verbose offerings—whilst remaining uniquely himself, in a writer as young as he is, is a very encouraging sign: one of maturity that belies his youth. I look forward to reading more from him in the near future.'
Andrew Raymond Drennan, author of The Immaculate Heart

'What I love best about Kelso's work here is his sense of style—it's casual, minimalistic, unpretentious, and fun to read, something that's missing from most fiction these days.'
—Carlton Mellick III, author of Satan Burger

'This emerging journeyman of the macabre has wormed his way into my grey-matter and continues to seep noxious ichor. I feel like I must devour him. Every little bit of him.'
Adam Lowe, author of Troglodyte Rose 

"High school without bullshit, pretence or outmoded tragic hipness, a book every bit as repulsive as growing up.'
—Garrett Cook, author of Jimmy Plush, Teddy Bear Detective and Winner of the First Annual Bizarro Showdown

'Chris Kelso is a weirdo! His stories are odd, interesting, and totally out there. The themes in this collection are glimpses from a different angle—but familiar, and well thought out. I like it!'
Kevin Shamel, author of Rotten Little Animals and Island of the Super People

'Kelso's writing is a straightforward punch of humor and horror . . . and he knows a lot about Alien, and that movie ruled.'
—David W Barbee, author of A Town Called Suckhole and Thunderpussy.

'Chris Kelso's writing is like a punch to the gut that forces your face against the page. The way his gritty prose carries his imagination is like a bar fight between Bradbury and Bukowski, with the reader coming out on top. The worlds he drags us into are so damn ugly that you have to admire their beauty.'
—Chris Boyle of BizarroCast
