Twisted Little Things and Other Stories by Amy Cross is a collection from one of my go-to authors of horror and weird stuff. She writes lots of novels and short stories, more than 100 publications, and still manages to surprise. If you go to her Amazon Author page, you will not find boxed sets or series. More than 100 individual works, I am impressed! I like this collection because each story surprises me in a different way. Because it is a short story collection, some stories have been publishe ...more

Twisted Little Things and Other Stories is a collection of short horror stories. These are tales of the hidden darkness that can lurk in the modern world, threatening to lash out and destroy lives. Some of the stories are about ghosts, others are about the way evil spreads f

A nice little collection of stories. All had incredibly different ideas and characters which made them interesting. Most of them however had a theme in common (view spoiler) Overall a nice collection of short stories - I personally enjoyed the final story the most.

It could however do with some proof reading becuase (view spoiler)

Apesar de a autora trabalhar com ideias originais em alguns dos contos contidos nos livros, senti que alguns se estenderam demais, chegando até mesmo a serem repetitivos em alguns momentos. Além disso, os personagens por vezes tomaram decisões questionáveis, e determinados acontecimentos nas histórias quebraram a suspensão da descrença.

Destaque para Table 9, sobre um restaurante com uma mesa assombrada por um espírito vingativo.

A super read!

This was, once again, Amy Cross at her very best. Mild horror mixed with fascinating ghost stories.

I particularly enjoyed the modern twist on the Ferryman and the River Styx tale. Not to mention the final, slightly humorous, tale of two ghosts meeting and not realising that they were dead. The way they went about scaring the pants off two arrogant ghost hunters was a delight. A wonderful mix of stories - well recommended.

Definitely an author to check out

I'd not heard of Amy Cross prior to purchasing this collection, but these extremely well written horror tales make me want to pick up more prose by the author. I would highly recommend Twisted Little Things and Other Stories as a place to begin. I guarantee you'll be hooked.

Horror collection

Decent collection of horror short stories; one of my favorite genres. These were fairly well written except for a reference to eBay in one story in a chapter that took place in 1963. Don't think eBay was a thing back then. Oops. Still. Good stories. Not too gory; just good stories.

Terrific horror stories. Some that scare you graphically. Others are terrifying suspenseful and most importantly there is a twist that you as the reader don't even see coming your way. Will be reading more of Amy's horrifying tales in the future!

Another Amazon freebie & another Amy masterpiece. Loved the stories in this book especially 'The ferry'. Hectic day today, so these shorter stories were perfect. Just the right amount of thrill & chill with a few unexpected twists thrown in for good measure.

Nicely done

Interesting tales. A nice variety of settings and characters.
Some made you think.
Some smile.
Some fringe in disgust.
All well done.
The final story was a great chance meeting.

I liked a number of the stories in this book. Although "The Ferry" really bored me, it was the longest one and I just couldn't get into it.

A very good collection of short stories from Amy Cross

Really liked all these stories although I thought The Ferry was a bit too long. The rest I really enjoyed though!

Twisted Little Things and Other Stories

I suppose every writer has short stories and some even have short stories that are made longer and reprinted. Sometimes the characters only want to go so far, then stop. Characters do that. And only writers understand. I enjoyed this series by Amy Cross. And some of the stories were really not resolved or rather left to the reader to surmise. It's the characters again. In some instances they said all there was to say,thus leaving the readers trying to guess

This was a total break away choice for me, and actually I found it to be interestingly and thoughtfully written. The author does a really great job of constructing short story narratives - in this collection they sit together in a really nicely curated whole.

I didn't find any of the subject matter truly disturbing, but rather very thought provoking. Amy's work has a very 'Tales of the Unexpected' feel to it, and would probably work well in a TV episode format.

Twisted little things and other stories - excellent!!

Ah loved this book. Couldn't believe I have just finished just would have read on and on. The Ferry was a particular favourite as well as the Devil who inhabits a town to kill everyone just for his pleasure. Every story was good and I must say this is my favourite Short Stories to date.. congrats Amy

Awesomely terrifying!

Just one more brilliant book by a creative and brilliant author I just can't get enough of! This book contains a myriad of short stories that keep you turning the pages. The only times I put it down was when my eyes became so tired that I'd literally fall asleep, only to wake up and pick up where I had left off! Can't wait to read a new Amy Cross book.

This book was ok. Some stories were either too short to me, or too long but that is the beauty of a book of short stories - if you don't like the one you finished, maybe the next will be better!

Twisted little book.

Normally short stories are not my thing but this selection is very good and well written. One story I recommend is The Ferry.

Deeply creepy, especially The Ferry. A decrepit old ferry... in a storm... packed full of people with dead eyes? *shiver*
