Amazon Number 1 Bestseller In Horror Anthologies (October 2016)

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.’

Reviews

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Brilliant, creative and dark  
Brilliant, creative and dark, Twisted 50 makes for chilling reading. I often find it hard to make time for reading during the day but the short length of these stories makes them perfect for bedtime. The collection is refreshingly original and showcases a huge selection of fiction writers. From the quirky and supernatural to the sinister and disturbing, the stories are diverse and challenge more traditional approaches to horror writing. I was hooked throughout and I hope there will be more from this group. At £1.99, the collection is also great value for money!
 
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 50 Nuggets of terror  
What is great about this book is each story is a perfectly formed individual nugget of horror, just long enough to terrify you on your commute to work and make you look over your shoulder all the way to the office.
 
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Such a bargain for such quality horror!  
If you remember gathering with you mates in that dingy corner behind the back of the bike sheds at school to read the old horror anthologies and then being kept awake at night as you recalled the vivid images of melting eyeballs etc, and you loved it, then this is the book for you! Warped, disturbing and memorable, the fifty beautifully crafted horror stories written by fifty brilliant new authors are guaranteed to have you checking underneath the mattress before you turn out the light. Such a bargain for such quality. Congratulations to all concerned… And watch out for the next ‘sister’ book too, coming soon!
 
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is a fantastic book of shorts  on 26 October 2016
Sick and twisted is right! This is a fantastic book of shorts. I challenge anyone to read it late at night, alone, with the lights out!
 
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A batch of mini Black Mirror episodes – in words  
This anthology has fifty short horror stories written by fifty weirdos who have no connection to each other, apart from their mental state. The stories are around seven pages long or less, and vary in their degree of sick-and-twistedness on a scale from nausea to projectile vomiting. I believe there’s reasonable cause for the authorities to raid the homes of some contributors.

Not all of my friends are readers. I mean; they can read but they don’t read, at least not beyond a little social media or football reports in The Metro.And that is no judgment, a number of them are among the most intelligent people I know, they just don’t do books. Whether it’s due to
