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

Women in Horror Recognition Month

We've put aside normal content this week to pay tribute to Women in Horror Recognition Month.

From Mary Shelley to the late Ingrid Pitt. Horror would be a pale imitation of what it is today without the work of fantastic women such as Allyson Bird, Poppy Z. Brite, Angela Carter, Mary Harron, Susan Hill, Shirley Jackson, Tabitha King, Sarah Langan, Tanith Lee, Sarah Pinborough, Cherie Priest, Ann Radcliffe, Anne Rice, Alexandra Sokoloff, Barbara Steele, Lisa Tuttle, and of course Twisted Tales friends and supporters Laura Bettney, Alison Littlewood, Amanda Norman and Sharon Ring. And those names merely skim the deep, dark lake of women in horror, to all the legions of other authors, artists, bloggers, reviewers, directors, actors, and fans - we salute you!
