Time for some more twisty tales of darkness…

The second volume of T Publications’ Twisted Dark anthology was significantly less dark than the first.

The guys, and writer Neil Gibson in particular, have learned from their lesson and, realising that you can’t please all of the people all of the time, have gone back to their roots in cooking up more tales of darkness. This is a good thing.

Like the first two volumes, number 3 is a series of short tales that largely interconnect in some way. The Colombian cartel seen in previous volumes makes a return, along with some new standalone and linked stories. While not every single story has a twist in the end, they remain as dark and entertaining as the first volume. The last story in particular is extremely dark and features a rather disturbing payoff that some Japanese horror directors would kill for.

Overall, a big improvement on Volume 2. Keep it up, guys.
