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 EVENT: An Evening of Occult Horror at Halton Lea Library, Runcorn

We are very happy to be able to unveil the first of our planned events to celebrate this year's Halloween, and also our first anniversary of promoting the best of 21st century horror. 

This event has been organised with Halton Lea Library as part of their Paranormal Week and will feature three fantastic talents giving readings, discussing the occult in horror fiction, and answering your questions.

Twisted Tales are proud to be able to present to you:

Ramsey Campbell,
A stalwart of Twisted Tales events and one of the most qualified people in the world to talk about the occult in horror fiction. Ramsey has won numerous awards for his fiction, with his new novel Ghosts Know forthcoming from PS Publishing.

Adam Nevill,
Formerly the editor for the Virgin Horror line and now a bestselling author in his own right, with his third novel The Ritual released in 2011. We are very excited that Adam has agreed to travel so far to be with us and discuss the role of the occult in horror, which is prominent in his own fiction.

John Reppion,
Co-author (with Leah Moore) of graphic novels such as Raise the Dead and The Complete Dracula, John also wrote 800 Years of Haunted Liverpool and so is uniquely placed to compare the fictional use of the occult with reported spooks and scares from Merseyside. He also kindly designed our amazing event poster for us.

The details in brief:
Thursday 27th October,
Halton Lea Library, Runcorn,
FREE event -
