'Twisted contains some of the best examples of horror fiction I’ve read in years. I loved every story. Most story collections or anthologies have a few duds. Twisted is the exception. The stories are all fantastic and hugely enjoyable.' FULL REVIEW HERE

I was recommended this book by a friend - and I don't usually read complications but I'm so glad I made the purchase. It's great to pick up during the day when I'm on a break and each story is just the right length for me to drink a cuppa and delve in. I like that all the writers have different styles. Although I have to admit I am making excuses to have more breaks than usual! I love the festive feel of it - and as I am reading each story I feel on the edge of my seat waiting for something grim to happen. I haven't finished the whole book yet but it's five stars so far :)

It's hard to be original with ghost stories these days, but this collection of 40 or so stories by contemporary writers refreshingly blends Christmas cheer with horror undertones. An impressive range of topics set in a holiday theme, varied points of view, and a wide selection of imagined characters and themes soaked in atmosphere, kept me entertained. These are mostly contemporary ghosts, with a couple of classics at the end. Ideal reading for ghost and horror fans, when you have half an hour to spare, to pick up and put down. Fantastic cover, nice presentation and page design and I particularly liked the introductions to each section by the Twisted50 founder. A quality publication.

I'm a big fan of short stories, especially horror, and this did not disappoint my twisted taste buds. Short and horrifyingly sweet, each Christmas themed tale of terror was a delight to read. My favourites were Power Cut, Isabella and Awake, but I enjoyed them all. Highly recommended.

Seeing into the minds of 50 brilliant writers
Simon in 'Beyond the Flesh' by Diana Read. He has OCD and counts everything from seconds to heartbeats. What makes him so scary is that he is dull, unadventurous, ordinary. Of course, he is anything but.
Enjoy? My heart raced during the scene when the circular saw cuts through the breastbone. I'm still trying to erase the image from my mind.
Twisted 50 ...beyond your worst imaginings
Each story is a good, bite-sized chunk but, as with Chinese food, you'll keep wanting to come back for more.
I'm extremely impressed with the wide range and quality of both the narrators and the stories.
I thoroughly enjoyed the invention in these stories. Many are written by unknown authors, and it proves there's a lot of talent out there.
It made me itch with dread, which is exactly as it should have.
Genuine quality. Some stories I preferred to others, but overall the bar is very high. Looking forward to reading more work from this talented group.
