These are just some of the lessons the characters in Tales with a Twist III learn. Whether satire, suspense, science fiction, fantasy, humor, or horror, the flash fiction in this third collection in Michael Williams's Twisted Tales series will make readers smile, laugh, gulp, wonder, and turn on the lights and check the locks.
