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.

How I Found My Story by Shirley Day

I got lost driving home last year and ended up on The Broads.  I loved the watery flat slightly-creepy-in-wintertime landscape, and had this idea of doing a short film there, though what, I didn’t know. Then over Christmas last year I saw the Twisted 50 site. I don’t normally do hard-core horror, more psychological thriller,

Are you getting enough exorcise? by Nick Yates

Picture a wet Friday afternoon in late November. Almost a year ago I was sitting at my desk on just such a day in need of creative inspiration. The proverbial waste paper basket was overflowing with balled up paper and a bruised forehead was all I had to show for it. I had a bad

Corporate Tragedy in a Foreign Language by Leo X. Robertson

I wrote a story about things I didn’t know I wanted to say. To me, it’s about the absurdism of the corporate adult world, how graduates are coerced into designing their lives in ways that are pleasing to companies, perhaps unknowingly sacrificing experiences that would bring them unique joy instead of trying to look good

The Story Behind “INSECTS” by Caroline Slocock

The idea for “Insects” came from a dream.  Or should I say, a nightmare. In the dream, I’m standing in the doorway of my kitchen, horrified.  There are heaving, crawling piles of insects everywhere. I rush in and turn on all the flames on the stove to try and incinerate them.  I turn the taps

– quote from John the Christmas cracker who took 1st place at the Boys’ Brigade fancy dress comp 1988. Okay, let’s travel forward in time a bit… On the evening of September 3rd, 2016, I found myself at the London Screenwriters’ Awards. My short story, Shenanigans, had been nominated for best story, and as I
