Betty Rocksteady’s novella The Writhing Skies (published by Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing) is a short, dread-inducing explosion of hauntingly bizarre — some sexual, some not — occurrences happening simultaneously, leaving you wondering — in a good way — by the end of the story: What the hell did I just read?

It’s almost mad to think She Said Destroy is Bulkin’s debut collection with how great the stories are. This collection is filled with weird fiction, and fueled by horror and socio-political stories.
I simply can’t wait for Bulkin’s next collection.
While every story within are good, there are some that stood out the most: “Red Goat, Black Goat,” “Seven Minutes in Heaven,” “Girl, I Love You,” “Violet is the Color of Your Energy,” “Absolute Zero,” and “No Gods, No Masters.”
