5.0 out of 5 stars A very good read 26 Feb. 2013

Michael Twist’s extraordinary third book, Touch of Beyond, implements and twists at the end of each story to give a subtle hint that there are otherworldly elements in play.
Each of the 13 stories starts out more or less ordinary. It’s not until the last page nears that the tales start becoming mysterious. While not all of the stories invoke an otherworldly sense, all of them are simply unexpected. Throughout Twist’s books, each storyline is unique, assuring that readers will never become disinterested.
“Quarterlies” is the story of Helen, a heartbroken mother who lost her child to an accident at school. After becoming divorced and isolating herself, she starts to receive letters with vivid illustrations of her lost child. The letters, which lack a return address, provide a sense of mystery to the story as Helen tries to find where they are coming from. Combined with Twist’s uncanny storytelling ability, the anguish and emotional rollercoaster that any mother would feel after losing a child floats right off the page. Through Twist’s writing, readers can connect with Helen as she slowly brings herself back from the depths of despair.
“The One You Remember” is a tale of fragile family’s Christmas. The family’s financial issues and frequent arguments are strikingly realistic, as are most of the scenarios in Twist’s stories. As the children hope that the annual holiday of family bonding may somehow repair the slowly breaking relationship, the feeling of Christmas and the sense of worry that something is bound to go terribly, terribly wrong permeates the pages, lingering in the air. Written from a teenager’s perspective, Twist flaunts his flawless transitions between each story, capturing the emotions and thoughts of a teenage girl in one, and reflecting the thoughts of a war veteran in another. “The One You Remember” is a lighthearted tale that encompasses a very well-built plot with the signature twist that connects all of the stories in Twist’s third book.
Touch of Beyond is truly beyond this world. Using the hints given throughout each story, Twist creates a game, challenging readers to catch the clues and make predictions about the ending. While unable to catch the hints and foreshadowing the first time around, a second read solidifies the fact that Twist did not pull any twists out of thin air. Each twist is carefully measured and carefully inserted so that an analytical and alert reader would be able to find it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! A joy to read 3 Aug. 2013

What a treat it was to read these stories. As always, Michael Twist's writing style is so delightful, filled with words strung together so beautifully that it's a joy to read them. These particular stories contained a different dimension to his earlier collections. There was just a touch of something "beyond" everyday life in each of them. Sometimes you realized it immediately and in others you weren't sure until the end. What can I add? The stories are perfectly written, entertaining, thought provoking and thoroughly enjoyable....of course, they are written by Michael Twist! Highly recommended.

If you enjoy stories with a touch of the supernatural or the unknown then these well written stories are for you. Mr. Twist develops some great surprises as he keeps the reader guessing with some very mystic endings. After the first few stories, try and match minds with the author to contemplate how future stories might end. I enjoy the fact some endings are left for the reader to ponder, which continue with you for days.
5.0 out of 5 stars Pure enchantment 11 July 2013

Once again Michael Twist has outdone himself. These stories are so engrossing and heartfelt that I was laughing and crying and will remember them long after finishing the book. Picture windows- master and dog out for a walk, one of them has a special ability. Closely knit- a new way of child rearing. The right call- having the choice to see anyone in history, and making the right call. Mr. P- a teacher with a touch of magic and a love for what he does. Long lost list- finding a note in a yearbook from an old classmate. The one you remember- there are things you never forget for various reasons. These and others are so enchanting I didn't want them to end. I am so glad I met up with this author and will be staying with him into the future. You will not go wrong by dipping into these stories or any of his books of short stories. I highly recommend them to any and all!!! I received this as an ebook from the author for an honest review. Way beyond five star plus!!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Twist has a Power with words 24 Feb. 2013
By Kristine - Published on Amazon.com

I should be upfront with you, it will make my review all the more special for Twist. I'll be honest, I normally do not like short stories. I love writing short stories, because...well...they're short. But reading them? I would so much rather a 'never ending series' type books. I fall in love with characters easily and I would rather read about their entire life then have to learn about another character. That being said, this collection of short stories is rated FOUR stars.

I don't want to give too much away about these, because, well, they are short. Anything I say, would detract from what you'll read. So this will be my most vague review ever. I will definitely recommend this book. Which says a lot considering the fact that I don't generally enjoy short stories. Each story in this book is powerful. There are quite a few that I would love the author to continue, not because they were too short, because they weren't. But because the storyline in them were so amazing and unique and have so much potential for a full length novel. Several of the stories are better short. They used every word wisely and the story would either give you chills, or have a lesson.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was creeped out, saddened, laughing, and thoughtful. The author has a power with words and the descriptions were amazing. Normally I would say that the author used too much description, but in this book, it worked. The only complaint I would have were that some of the sentences ran on forever. They could have been broken into a couple of sentences instead. That being said, it was a minuscule problem that did not detract from the power of these stories. I will be recommending this book to any reader I come across. There is something in this book for everyone. Good job Twist, you wrote a book of short stories that everyone, even people who dislike short stories, is sure to enjoy.
