TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: Weather the Storm by Neil Douglas Newton

Neil Newton’s contribution to the anthology Twisted Tales is as different from his book The Railroad as cherries are to onions. Weather the Storm is pure science fiction, complete with other worldly beings. I won’t call them aliens because I don’t want to conjure up images of little green men or tall gray creatures. Written in the first person, the story instantly drew me in. … Continue reading TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: Weather the Storm by Neil Douglas Newton

TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: The Burglar by Glen Barrera

I’ve read both of Glen Barrera’s action-packed books, The Assassin Who Couldn’t Dance and A Capable and Wide Revenge. He’s shown himself to be quite a wordsmith when it comes to describing the explosive fight scenes in both books. In the short story he contributes to the Twisted Tales anthology, The Burglar, he proves his skill with words extends beyond battle scenes. Within the first … Continue reading TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: The Burglar by Glen Barrera

TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns Kindle Edition: The 13th Sign by Jean Gill

I’ve enjoyed Jean Gill’s well researched and beautifully written historical fiction series; Song at Dawn, Bladesong, and Plaint for Provence. Her short story for Twisted Tales is very different from these books. The 13th Sign is a fantasy/science fiction story about the creation or addition of a new zodiac sign, Ophiuchus. Gill gives voice to the zodiac signs and the story is an amusing examination … Continue reading TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns Kindle Edition: The 13th Sign by Jean Gill

TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: The Agent by Alex Shaw

    I love a good international spy story. I was reading Ian Fleming’s James Bond series when I was less than thirteen, much to my parents chagrin. I’d only read one of Alex Shaw’s books, Cold Blood, before diving into his short story in the anthology Twisted Tales. The Agent is a well written short that packs a neat punch. Set in Spain, British … Continue reading TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: The Agent by Alex Shaw

TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: Prime Meridian by Geoff Nelder

Geoff Nelder has written one of my favorite science fiction stories, ARIA: Left Luggage. He has a unique approach to the genre so I looked forward to his contribution to Twisted Tales. He lived up to my expectations shiningly with his short story Prime Meridian. Perhaps the most complex of the stories in the anthology, it is both scientific and humorous. The story of Chingford’s … Continue reading TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: Prime Meridian by Geoff Nelder

TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: Letting Go by Michelle Medhat

I have read Michelle Medhat’s mind-blowing books that are an incredible action packed combination of science fiction and terrorism. The Call and The Shift are great stand alone books but even more enjoyable when read in the Author’s Cut. Medhat’s contribution to Twisted Tales, Letting Go, is a departure from her earlier works. High tension exudes from every word. At first I thought this was … Continue reading TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: Letting Go by Michelle Medhat
