Good writing combined with an original premise; although the witches' dialogue was a bit juvenile at times. Overall however a good read. The Broken Needles witches are interesting characters. At the end I found myself wanting to read more about them. Hopefully DeNight will write more Broken Needles stories.
Imagine if Tom Sharpe (Wilt, Blot on the Landscape, etc.) had been both, an LSD *and* a cocaine fiend, and you've got an idea of Richard Parr's sense of wordplay and story pacing. Zulgahoik! is a psychedelic, frantic, violent, and humorous trip.
It cost millions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of words to produce a forgettable movie called, Guardians of the Galaxy. Richard Parr created a memorable story with memorable characters in under 4,200 words, and costing probably only a couple of pints. Nice work.
