Warm hearted, silly and, most importantly, filled with tons of outrageous sex, Daniel W. Kelly’s novel Combustion combines supernatural activity, social commentary and fiery vampire lore with giddy aplomb.
Concerning the efforts of Deck Waxer, a burly PI, who finds himself in plenty of hot and horror-ific action in a burgeoning gay village known as Kremfort Cove, this queer terror entry is fast paced and adventurous. Most importantly, Kelly incorporates plenty of messages of positive self-image, here. Waxer, in particular, is painted as someone without the club boy body type. But he is, also, highly desired and intensely sexual – proving that wherever one falls on the physical spectrum, there is never any reason to doubt your desirability. A gentle giant named Milkman Stan, whose sexual activities are some of the more unusual covered here is, also, one of the book’s more enjoyable, body positive characters, as well.
Of course, with a multitude of interesting characters and several dangling plotlines at this tome’s end, it is no surprise that Kelly has revisited the world he has created here in his second novel, No Place for Little Ones.
