I received an ARC of “This Twisted Earth” in exchange for an honest review.

Wow is the only suitable word to use when attempting to summarize the collected tales found in “This Twisted Earth”. Described as “…a chance to play cat’s cradle with Time”, this anthology is based entirely on a singularly bold and mind-expanding proposition - what if Time itself was fluid, fractured and a jumbled mesh of temporal threads from yesterday and tomorrow - all intersecting today?

Originally reviewed at Booksquawk.com

Imagine Brexit was more than an economic and political separation. Imagine Britain was physically torn from its place alongside the continent, and dropped into an empty gap in the middle of the Amazon. In the Mesolithic period. Also, add monsters. Think of the horrors which could be unleashed, and not just on prominent UKIP members. Mouth-watering, isn’t it?

“This Twisted Earth” is an eclectic collection of stories all anchored by one central premise: that the
