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

Photos from Twisted Tales meets [Roald Dahl's] Twisted Tales event

Earlier this morning our review of Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales went online. Before going to the show on opening night we played host to a special Twisted Tales event with our greatest supporter Ramsey Campbell and his friend, and screen and stage-writer extraordinary: Jeremy Dyson.

Jeremy is, of course, best know for being one of the creators of the infamous TV series The League of Gentlemen. He was also the writer for our favourite horror experience on the stage: Ghost Stories. Alongside these achievements he's also penned two collections of short stories and a novel (with a new book forthcoming, he informed us).

The event was organised with the help of Liverpool's Playhouse Theatre who added their publicity might to make sure we got a brilliant turnout despite only having 9 days between confirming the details of the event and hosting it. Below are some photos from the event and some links to brilliant video footage taken by Liverpool's Daily Post, enjoy!

This was a great event, if you were there we'd love to hear your opinion in the comments box below. A big thanks to everyone who came to watch, to our two brilliant writers, and to the Playhouse for approaching us.
