Like a vodka martini needs a twist of lemon to bring out the subtler flavours, 'Twisted Tales' needs a little time and effort to draw out the sub-texts from these stories. Flash Fiction is the epitome of more with less. It doesn't seem possible to get a meaningful story into so few words, yet these authors do just that over and over. However, they achieve this by expecting a little more from their readers. A little more time, a little more intellect, a little more care in reading each of the carefully chosen words. Take the trouble and you will be rewarded with deceptively simple, but exquisitely crafted gems.
