I recommend putting a little arsenic frosting on this treat by getting it now and reading it during the darkest months of the year.
I thought Twisted was great. I’m a huge fan of horror fiction. I love stories that unsettle me and make my flesh crawl. I hate stories that use gore simply for shock value. Thankfully, no stories in Twisted fall into the latter category. There was some gore in the collection (with 50 stories that’s to be expected) but the gore was relevant to the story. 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. I have a few persona favourites; Bite by Kendall Castor-Perry, doG Lived by Troll Dahl, Insects by Caroline Slocock, Itch by Karen Heard, A Curious Boy by Josh Saltzman and Killer Hells by Sasha Black. The best story in the collection is Do Blastocyts Dream of Foetal Sheep? By Alex Thompson. This story is a bit gory and so unsettling it made my flesh crawl. The story is narrated by a foetus that plots revenge when it’s mother tries a home abortion with a curved blade. Twisted is a fantastic collection of horror stories and a must for any fan of horror fiction. I’d highly recommend it.

The anthology Twisted 50: 50 Contemporary Shockers from the most terrifying new writers of horror...is aptly named and will cause shivers to run up and down your spine with each story you read. This collection has stories that will shock you and if you’re like me re-reading some pages saying “That didn’t just happen, did it?” Horror is a genre that I fell in love with in my teens and I am always looking for authors that I have not read before and this book has many to choose from. All of these authors have ways of writing that will delight anyone who loves reading scary stories. When I started reading this book I told myself that I would read a few and then pause. This didn’t happen as once I started in I couldn’t put them down. Of course, I would suggest reading with the lights on as you wouldn’t want anything sneaking up behind you or slithering out from under the bed. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a love of scary stories and are brave enough to enter worlds that are sometimes better left unknown. I received a copy of this anthology and voluntarily reviewed it.

There is a very high standard to this collection, and it contains some very dark stories. I read a lot of these anthologies and collections, and for me, Twisted Vol 1 stands out from the rest of the pack for its quality and range. Thoroughly recommended.
This book was perfect for reading on the train. The stories were just long enough for me to get engaged with but not so long that I'd miss my stop, or have to leave a story just at an exciting part. Highly recommended!
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.
