Twisted Shorts by Andrew Lennon
"Great short stories

These are some great short stories. I would recommend for someone who likes short reads would have like some of the stories to be a little longer but that is why they are called short reads. Would recommend.

Twisted Shorts by Andrew Lennon
"Think this is the best collection of short stories I’ve ever read.
There wasn’t one that I didn’t enjoy and unlike other short stories I’ve read in the past I didn’t find these lacking in any way.
Scarily brilliant read"

This was okay. Not my favourite of Hill’s work. I found myself picking it up then quickly putting it back down quite a lot.
The storyline was pretty cool, but overall the execution fell pretty flat for me.
Still, the artwork was cool to look at.

Kennedy has given us a great tale, reminiscent of Bradbury. Halloween was truly a joy to read.

This was an okay read.
The artwork is beautiful. I adored almost every page (except the epilogue)
The story, however, was a bit lacklustre. It certainly wasn’t a patch on its predecessor NOS4A2.
I didn’t particularly like the epilogue. The artwork chang

“Smoke rose from the barrel of the gun like a serpent crawling up from its wicker basket”
Andrew Lennon, Family Man

“Stress is like a blanket. It covers you and makes it hard to breath; you can’t see a way out. So you kick and punch and sometimes end up hurting the people close to you that are trying to help. When you listen, and calm yourself, the blanket is slowly removed. Your vision clears and you see the person that helped you remove it. Then all is well again.”
Andrew Lennon, Ode To Death

Yes, do! It's very dark, and completely different to anything I've read before. It's really cool :-)
