Tales with a Twist II is the second book in Michael Williams's Twisted Tale Series.
As in his first volume of flash fiction, Williams's latest tales explore culture, psychology, social conventions, politics, and personal values, often illuminating the dark places of the human heart and mind, and regardless of whether a story empathizes, satirizes, sympathizes, or criticizes human desire, compulsion, ambition, and greed or emphasizes love, devotion, or sacrifice, Tales with a Twist II always entertains. The stories are refreshingly brief, but complete. They're fun, quick reads; they meet Edgar Allan's Poe's requirement for short stories: each can be read in a single sitting, usually in less than ten minutes—and their plots all offer a surprise inside.
~~From the author: I'm an eclectic reader. I enjoy learning about a variety of subjects. I guess you could say I'm a generalist. Sometimes, when the stars are in alignment, a remembered fact here will meet up with a recalled fact there, and, out of this connection of one thing and another, an idea will emerge. I might combine one of Thomas Edison’s inventions with the spiritualistic belief in the ability of the living to communicate with the dead, or I could update an ancient myth or a modern horror movie. As Arthur Golding wrote, in translating John Calvin, “All is grist for the mill.”
