Praise for Twisted Tales Events

'In the past few years Twisted Tales has become a major force in the promotion and appreciation of horror fiction. As well as putting on author readings and signings at bookshops it has expanded into organising larger events, bringing authors and critics together for discussions of the field. I've been involved in quite a few of both and have found them hugely enjoyable and stimulating - I believe the audiences did as well. May Twisted Tales continue to grow and prosper! If you love the field, support them! I do.' - Ramsey Campbell

‘Twisted Tales consistently produce well-organised events for writers and readers of horror. What really distinguishes Twisted Tales for me is the intelligent themes and investigations they pursue, and the high quality of the discussions they always stimulate. As an author I've been invited to three of their events and have been pleasantly startled, to near shocked, by the attendance levels - two out of three were even sold out. I salute anyone who contributes so much to the literary and cultural life of horror fiction.’- Adam Nevill

'Twisted Tales events are wonderful... a great way of promoting 21st century horror fiction. Supported by Waterstone's Liverpool One and really well organised, Twisted Tales brings together established names in the genre as well as new voices and of course readers. Looking forward to much more to come...' - Alison J. Littlewood

New Blog Banner

The Original Thieving Fear Cover
As Twisted Tales continues to grow we are keen to develop a visual identity for the blog and related literature. One of the first things new visitors see when they come to the blog is the banner image and so we wanted to make sure that it reflected the art associated with 21st Century horror. Our first port of call was the phenomenally talented Vincent Chong, whose work has been used for high profile publications like The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror 21 through to cutting-edge fiction from upcoming authors such as Rio Youers. Vinny offered us the use of any of his existing design work to be cropped and adapted for our purposes and we opted for the cover of Ramsey Campbell's Thieving Fear from one of the most innovative and consistently excellent small press publishers on the market, PS Publishing. Aside from being a strikingly evocative image, our reason for choosing a cover from Ramsey Campbell's work is also an acknowledgement of the enormous role he has played in supporting our events: giving a reading, publicizing everything we do, and attending each time. It has been a pleasure to work with Ramsey and we hope to collaborate with both him and Vincent Chong again in 2011 and beyond.

You can see the new banner at the top of the page and I'm sure you'll agree that it's extremely striking. Thanks again Vinny!
