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.

Listen to Steph Wessell on BBC Radio Bristol talking Create50!

Our very own one woman marketing machine Steph Wessell has been spreading the good news about Twisted50 again by getting herself on the radio and slaying it like a pro. It’s a terrific interview, and listen to how it sounds when the host refers to knocking Stephen King off the top spot. Twisted50 writers… That’s YOUR book

Listening to the Twisted50 Audio Files by Elinor Perry-Smith

What I’ve noticed about listening to these excellent stories is how much I’ve invested in them, It was my privilege to help edit about half of them and that was a learning curve in itself, so when I listened to those particular stories I found myself remembering so much of them and also crucially noticing

So what is the Twisted50 Audiobook Experience REALLY like? Here’s what listeners say…

The Twisted50 Audiobook has been ‘beta’ listened to by five people. During this process the feedback surprised even us. It seems that Twisted50 narrated is EVEN better than the written word. Here is feedback from three of the listeners… ‘The Twisted50 audiobook is a compelling, unhurried, lingering, luxurious, silk-lined, creamy-dark, downy flick-knife musk-rose experience. So

What’s Eating You? By Dee Chilton

I created the main character in ‘She Will Never Die’ from personal experience and a fear of drowning (yes, my joining the Navy was perhaps an odd choice in view of that!). I mixed that with putting myself  ‘in her shoes’, as she faces up to her horrific, inescapable situation and the end of her

A Letter to the Hesitant Writer by Milethia Thomas

A hesitant writer recently asked about writing. “I want to write a book. Where do you find the time? Where do you get the ideas? You must have a good imagination.” I said something along the lines of – “You just have to start writing.” Of course, this is true (and obvious) but if I’d

How One Voice Brought My Story To Life by Jacqui Canham

When I was coming through arrivals at Heathrow Airport one day, I was struck by the sea of signs bearing names. I wondered – how do the people holding these signs know for sure that the person approaching them really is Michael Smith or Sophie Brown? What if that person was just pretending to be

The Power of the Audiobook: Injecting Creepy Life into ‘Busy Izzie’ by Milethia Thomas

Nervously excited I pressed the play button to hear the extract from ‘Busy Izzie’. Tantalising snippets of music… Why is the music stuttering? My temperamental laptop froze. My giddy aunt! I closed and restarted the browser… Tinkling, repeated piano notes, giving a feeling that ‘something wicked this way comes’, which immediately had me imagining Izzie
