With the new year, I will be posting a monthly “Books Read” on the first day of the following month (ex. January’s will be posted on February 1st). I’ll give my brief thoughts on the book, and if I really enjoyed it, it’ll likely be given a Book Spotlight post soon thereafter.
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.”
Guignol & Other Sardonic Tales is published by Word Horde, and is Orrin Grey’s third collection, following his wonderful collection, Painted Monsters & Other Strange Beasts, and what a follow-up it is.
