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.’

Do Blastocysts Dream Of Foetal Sheep audiobook excerpt
Some of the tales in Twisted are just a little bit more Twisted than others. Do Blastocysts Dream Of Foetal Sheep? by Alex Thompson is one such story. Read it if you dare. I just got the first part of the Audiobook performance by Joan Walker and it is, as with all other excerpts from the Audiobook, outstanding. I cannot wait

Every Horror Story is a Personal Story by Steve Pool
At some point, every writer will likely be asked, “Where do you come up with your ideas?” Well, for most of us, I believe, the ideas come from straight from our inner-selves: not from our heads so much as from our hearts and our memories. When a writer sets out to write a story, he

Summer Sky by John Read
In the heat of the revolution, not only the Royals lost their heads. Many people who were seen as part of the ‘establishment’ were also despatched by the guillotine. One of these unfortunates was a doctor. A very dedicated doctor as it transpired. A guard was assigned to accompany the condemned man to his fate.
The Twisted Core by Hillier Townsend
Huh. I just realized that all the stories I’ve written thus far for the Twisted series, despite having different story lines, different characters, and different “voices”, share a common theme: the horrifying consequences of a person blindly fulfilling their needs at the expense of others. The reasons “why” vary, too. In one of these stories,
Bloated by Penegrin Shaw
A year back, I had what most would describe as a breakdown. I ran out of juice and had too many balls up in the air at once. I can talk about it easily, because I had an amazing doctor who listened to me with genuine concern and the most supportive and patient wife. Then I found someone that would
Paper Cuts by KK Rickcord
Paper Cuts was a letter that had already been written in my mind some years ago and deposited in an envelope somewhere in a sorting office at the back of it. I have suffered with severe ME/CFS since I was twenty-two, and it left me so ill that there were times over the years when
The Beholder: How We’re All Watched… by Stephanie Wessell
For me, truly horrifying tales involve a hidden evil within normal, everyday life. Imagine: there’s an unsettling spirit entity watching you read this RIGHT NOW. Can’t you feel it, observing you? It’s right here, just at your shoulder, willing you to turn around… look. Look now. LOOK! Nothing there? It doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist…
Do Blastocysts Dream Of Foetal Sheep? by Alex Thompson
For such a horrible story, the first version of Do Blastocysts Dream Of Foetal Sheep? It was actually written to make my girlfriend at the time laugh. We both shared the same strange (twisted?) sense of humor so I wrote as disturbing a story as I possibly could. This was the result, so it’s a
The Little Story That Could by N.W. Twyford
I’ve always loved writing short stories. To me, a good short story is like a good joke – you build it up, set the scene, and then you reveal, you subvert, you twist. A good short story shouldn’t just end. The only problem with a short story is what to do with one when it’s
A Push by Richie Brown
It’s only lately that I stopped all that and started to write creatively, following a stroke and medical retirement. Not so good, but it could have been much worse, so I’m very lucky. (Just prior to the stroke, I was pulling together information to see how feasible it would be to leave the bloody job.
