    This collection of 23 tales was a bit of a mixed bag for me. The anthology started strong with one highlight story after another like Gabby, Stormy Weather, The Voice, Cooking Without Onions, Klingsor's First Summer, Mad Mary or Waiting but the more stories I read the hits became less and the misses (for me) more. Dear Mrs Burton (a wife suspects her husband trying to murder her) was the last great story. Considering all the stunning stories I liked I would give 5 stars but with the stories I di This collection of 23 tales was a bit of a mixed bag for me.

Considering all the stunning stories I liked I would give 5 stars but with the stories I didn't like (actually the higher number) I have to rate somewhere in the middle. Those stories I liked I can highly recommend. For the others you have to find out for yourselves.

    I picked this volume up primarily for Jacob Rayne's debut short story SEMANA DE FUEGO, and it didn't disappoint. My current rating is based soley on this particular story. In the same manner as Joe Hill's BEST NEW HORROR (but with a completely different genre setting), SEMANA DE FUEGO gives the reader hints as to where it's heading early on - maybe a familiar path, maybe not - but delightful nonetheless as the story unfolds to ultimately reveal whether it is playing into or against reader expecta I picked this volume up primarily for Jacob Rayne's debut short story SEMANA DE FUEGO, and it didn't disappoint.

Jacob Rayne's prose is crisp, clean and confident, and I look forward to future work from this new author. Recommended.

    If you don't have a lot of time to read, or you prefer short stories, or you just want to read some excellent horror stories, Wild Wolf's Twisted Tails is tailor made for you. You'll especially want to read the stories by Chuck Lovatt. If I had one complaint about this book, it is that there are not enough stories by Lovatt. His tales are vivid, creative and scary, just the way I like them! Read it, my friends, and feel the goose pimples rise across your cold flesh.

    This is an anthology of short stories, all with a dark and twisted theme to them. This anthology is to showcase the very best Wild Wolf has to offer but also includes a couple of authors who are not in the Wild Wolf stable. I love anthologies. You can dip in and out of them at will, whenever you have a quick five minutes, but they are also really hard to review! This was a great introduction to Wild Wolf's principle genre of writing.

Each story was deliciously dark, and as ever there were one or two stand outs. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting both new authors and authors I have had the pleasure of reading before. hopefully those not in the stable will be snapped up before too long!

    I bought this awesome anthology with no prior experience reading any of the authors featured within. I had heard of one, though. Jacob Rayne. I figured since I knew of him I would give the anthology a chance. Man, I am so glad I did. These stories are dark, disturbing and certainly twisted. Mr. Rayne's story was one that really grabbed me. I don't know where it was set, which I believe was the point, but I don't ever want to visit!

    My first thought upon choosing this book was that it would have werewolf stories in it. I don't know why, but now I can't even remember if I read (certainly didn't remember) the synopsis. Either way, I knew two things about this piece before I started it. A) That one of my favorite writers, Poppet, had several stories in the anthology and B) It had some scary shorts. So it dawned on me about the third story in what "Wild Wolf's Twisted Tales" actually was: a collection of horror and bizarre tale My first thought upon choosing this book was that it would have werewolf stories in it.

A) That one of my favorite writers, Poppet, had several stories in the anthology and B) It had some scary shorts. So it dawned on me about the third story in what "Wild Wolf's Twisted Tales" actually was: a collection of horror and bizarre tales from UK authors. I began to notice the voice in each tale, the cultural contexts and yes, I stopped looking for wolves. I was able to really enjoy reading this anthology. There were a few editing mishaps that threw me off and I really should reread this collection again due to my assumption fails. There are a few gems that truly stand out in this anthology. Of course Poppet has one story about a convent that stirred me in specific, but she does have a few more that are just as riveting like one about a female cult's demise. Semana de Fuego by J Rayne is a gem and "The Room" by Mark Sinclair was a lot on the side of chilling. I highly recommend this affordable collection (2.99 on Amazon for Kindle) if you are the type that likes bite-sized horror!

    I picked this up as free download. I don't usually go for short stories, but I'd heard good things about quite a few of the authors involved in this anthology so thought it a good opportunity to sample their work. I was impressed not only by the quality of the writing but at the mix of styles. It proved to be quite addictive. I read it over two days.

Too many to mention a favourite, but one that sticks in my mind "Happy Now" probably the shortest of the bunch, and I'm not going to spoil it for you, but last line of the third paragraph from the end...oh my goodness...nooooo! A real heart stopper. If you like horror I'd definitely recommend this.

    Ranging from totally terrifying to bizarrely different and everything in between, this collection of short stories from well known authors was for many months my absolute must 'go to' book for all waiting rooms and journeys. Even though I have read it several times,still gets the occasional reread. Chosen with care, these stories are all excellent. One particular favourite is 'Cooking Without Onions', by C. W. Lovatt, a rather warped look at marriage ...
