Journalstone's 2011 Warped Wordsby Joel Kirkpatrick, John La Rue, Brad Carpenter, Bruce Golden, Jeffrey Wilson
From the very best of our 2011 Short Story Competition, we bring you stories with two common themes: a timed demise and a lock of hair. Our authors have combined those two elements in wickedly inventive tales that we are proudly adding to our Warped Words Anthology series. JournalStone Publishing presents thirteen new additions, from thirteen authors, in our five favorite genres. Strange tales spawned from Fantasy and Young Adult, as well as our time honored Horror, Sci-Fi and Paranormal themes.
Thirteen divergent tales of horror, desperation, panic, helplessness-even glory. You will feel the weight of time as these poor characters feel it, and you will wonder...
Who will survive? Who will have a choice?
The results are stunning. You will be squeezed till you cannot breathe in the silence of space. You will lie waiting for death in a tropical haze. A city will crumble as you seek your escape and demons will come to party in your favorite nightspots. Join us as we peek into these very dark places...but keep your eye on the clock. Someone has but.....

JournalStone's 2011 Warped Words: 90 Minutes to Live Every story in this anthology has to have two common themes: a lock of hair and a timed demise. It was interesting to see how each author decided to incorporate these themes into their stories. All thirteen stories were interesting, although I found the ones with a science fiction slant the more captivating bunch of the book. One of the notable stories is "Dead Already" which is written by John La Rue. This story is set aboard a space craft that is found floating dead in space. I thought that the author really brought an interesting twist to the story and kept my interest especially regarding the timed demise. Although I liked the science fiction stories better, the horror stories and paranormal stories were also well written. Overall there really are no complaints about this anthology. The stories were well chosen and will keep you on the edge of your seat!
