“Rocksteady doesn’t just write stories. She writes nightmares. Her fiction will seep into your brain and contaminate every ounce of safety. Consider this collection anxiety personified. It doesn’t matter if you read it at night or day. The fact that you’re holding it in your hands means it’s already too late.”
—Max Booth III, author of Carnivorous Lunar Activities


“Those taboo subjects people don’t write about? They’re in here. Be careful.”
—Chad Lutzke, author of Stirring the Sheets and Of Foster Homes & Flies


 “Betty Rocksteady is a master of the fantastical. Sometimes spooky, sometimes strange, but always a lot of fun.”
—Danger Slater, author of Impossible James


Fiction like a fever dream…

A voyeur suddenly becomes the one being watched, terrifying beasts are stitched together, strange new insects appear, ancient sex gods rise, and an island on the brink of madness falls apart.

Betty Rocksteady’s debut collection blends surrealism and horror, tearing apart tropes as words bleed and transform down unexpected avenues of nightmare logic. These twenty stories run the gamut from splatterpunk to somber. They’re hot and wet and nasty, guaranteed to leave you with an unspeakable sense of dread.
