Twisted 50 volume 1
Twisted contains some of the best examples of horror fiction I’ve read in years. Most story collections or anthologies have a few duds. Twisted is the exception. The stories are all fantastic and hugely enjoyable.’

I just found out that Richie Brown, one of our writers from Create50, has sadly died. Richie was a prolific writer for Create50 and a huge supporter, both publically, and behind the scenes. A handful of writers really committed to elevating the whole Twisted50 experience for everyone, and Richie was one of them. During the
Writing is something that I have been doing pretty much from age 15. I write horror because darkness is addictive, I still remember checking for monsters under my bed as a child and seeing shadows where there were none. I have written many horror short stories, getting better all the time, until a good friend
2018 seems a long time ago now, but I remember it ended on a high. Sure I’d seen the pictures of the red carpet events put on by Create50 but I never thought I’d attend one. Then I saw my name on the shortlist for The Singularity. Then I found out that my story, Hive Mind,
It seems fitting, writing this post, that my FACEBOOK notifications should have spit out a year-old post reminding me that it has been just under 12 months since the TWISTED50 launch party and awards ceremony at the Cinema Museum in London. The reminder was for a change of profile cover picture to the Twisted50 Vol 2 Logo to celebrate winning a
Imagine a twelve-year-old girl exiled to deepest, dankest Manchester, unknowingly about to be presented to endless relatives offering tinned salmon and peaches, existing instead on blackcurrant jam sandwiches… Then imagine her in that foreign land, staying in a tiny bedroom, which was crammed full of books packed with the most wonderful things; especially a large
Many of my stories are set in the woods near where I live, and my inspiration for ‘Witches’ came from the same place. The clearing where I set the story really does exist, and just after dawn on a sunny morning shafts of light fall through the trees and illuminate it in a truly magical
Releasing your writing into the wild is scary. It’s your precious baby that you’ve nurtured and put your heart and soul into and now you fear it will be ripped to shreds. I was certainly worried about that when I decided to enter the Twisted 50 Vol. 2 short story competition. It had been a
You know what’s really scary? Being taken by total surprise and interviewed on camera. Many will know I can warm to my subject (!) and waffle on, but I feel (hope) I did the Create50 and LSF justice on this occasion. Fortunately the interviewer, the lovely Ellie Torrez, was superb at putting me/us at
I have been known to look under the bed before turning the light out. I have been known to check the whole flat, room by room, every nook and cranny, before going to sleep. Usually it’s because I’ve been watching some drama on TV that has spooked me. But sometimes it’s because I’ve been reading
*** Possible Spoiler Alert *** (Strongly advise reading this only after reading the story in Twisted 50: Evil Little Sister) One of my screenplays is based on an horrific incident that happened on a warship while I was serving in the Royal Navy. Severe damage and loss of life were involved. A ship is like
My story is about a bridge. I love bridges, always been fascinated by them, so when Twisted 2 threw out the call for stories I knew mine had to feature a bridge. It also features a brave protagonist venturing out alone onto said bridge, and a nasty creature waiting to pounce… and if any of
Author John Ashbrook was the only author in Twisted50 volume one who chose to narrate their own story – and what a great job he did too with ‘The Spider Taketh Hold’. He recently did a radio interview for BBC Radio Humberside and you can listen to it here… We hope you enjoy! Mistress Twisted
