⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Christmas Doesn’t Always Dispel The Dark By F. F. Ross on 17 December 2020

It’s hard to be original with ghost stories these days, but this collection of 40 or so stories by contemporary writers refreshingly blends Christmas cheer with horror undertones. An impressive range of topics set in a holiday theme, varied points of view, and a wide selection of imagined characters and themes soaked in atmosphere, kept me entertained. These are mostly contemporary ghosts, with a couple of classics at the end. Ideal reading for ghost and horror fans, when you have half an hour to spare, to pick up and put down. Fantastic cover, nice presentation and page design and I particularly liked the introductions to each section by the Twisted50 founder. A quality publication.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A Twisted Entertaining Read By M.W. Renshaw on 16 December 2020

I’m a big fan of short stories, especially horror, and this did not disappoint my twisted taste buds. Short and horrifyingly sweet, each Christmas themed tale of terror was a delight to read. My favourites were Power Cut, Isabella and Awake, but I enjoyed them all. Highly recommended.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A Chilling Collection of Creepy Christmas Stories By The Queen of Darkness on 14 December 2020
I just loved this anthology. There is something for everyone in this book. From ghosts to monsters to psychopaths. I especially enjoyed the turkey one by Chris Jeal, I laughed so much! Isabella by Mark Walker, so eerie. And Lawrence Morgan’s one about Van Gogh’s ear, such a great concept. There are many others that I also loved, but honestly, all of these stories are creepy and fun to read. Bite-sized tales of terror to enjoy reading in front of the fire with a glass of wine and a mince pie. 🙂

Rejection and Redemption by Michael van Koetsveld

I have written literally hundreds of short pieces, to a one-day deadline, to a prompt. The prospect of getting a story done in ten days held no horrors for me.  At the beginning of lock down I joined a group of writers who did the daily tasks for 70 days in a row, completing over

Impossible Deadlines Are My New Best Friend by Rose Banks

Time was never my friend. Any kind of deadline… it usually didn’t end well. Four, five month deadlines for anthologies and I crashed and burned. But there would be no dishonour in failing to meet a 10 day deadline. Because that’s obviously impossible, anyhow, right? So I opened up TextEdit—because unlike Word that meant I

Lopped, Chopped and Roasted by Fiona Faith Ross
