What did you like most about Twisted 50?

Seeing into the minds of 50 brilliant writers

Who was your favorite character and why?

Simon in 'Beyond the Flesh' by Diana Read. He has OCD and counts everything from seconds to heartbeats. What makes him so scary is that he is dull, unadventurous, ordinary. Of course, he is anything but.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Enjoy? My heart raced during the scene when the circular saw cuts through the breastbone. I'm still trying to erase the image from my mind.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Twisted 50 ...beyond your worst imaginings

Any additional comments?

Each story is a good, bite-sized chunk but, as with Chinese food, you'll keep wanting to come back for more.
