Twisted Tails - Review


The title of this anthology is apt, for these are twisted tails indeed, each different, each surprising. Well done to every contributor for creating an intriguing read, and well done Wild Wolf for putting it together for the rest of us to enjoy.

Here’s a quick take of each ‘tail’:

The Voice by Kevin Tomsett: No getting away from the voice, even when you think it silenced

Mad Mary by Tony Wright: Boys will be boys…until time catches them
Freedom’s Wings by CW Lovatt: You’ll be mesmerized by the masterful spliff rolling…!
In Nomine Patris by Poppet: How the Word is twisted and betrayed- remember, forgiveness is earned

Happy Now? by David Rogers: A final solution to unhappiness
Everything Must Go by Kirsty Neary: Junkies looking for a fix? Or something more? Love the colloquial language!

DEAR MRS. BURTON… by Giles Richard Ekins: *shiver* my computer knowing the truth before I do would really creep me out!
New Beginning by Troy Lambert: A tale of perseverance and hope despite terrible odds
Preacher Man by IS Paton: Wow, beware the fanatical!
Semana de Fuego by Jacob Rayne: It’s Fire Week, when the locals burn idols…but that fire cooks up something too tasty…
The Study in Blue by Jo Reed: Revenge is sweet…pea!
The Room by Mark Sinclair: Be very careful of what you wish for…
