Although the Anthologies book “Twisted Shorties” is said to be written by A. F. Stewart on Smashwords, it is actually a collection of amazing poems and short stories written  by various members of the gather community.

I was really disappointed to see that only 15 reviews have been written on this book to-date.  That was after I added my own review and rating.

You can download a free copy of this book in various forms.  The full book is available in the following formats:

 I then hooked up my Nook to my computer.

Found the book on my computer and transferred it to my Nook.  It was simple and quick.

Personal Review

I was so excited to find a book with this many amazing authors in it. The gather community is filled with talent and this book is just more proof of that. I smiled, wiped a tear and laughed out loud while reading this collection of stories and poems. I love how this online community is making its mark on the real world. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read. Each story/poem is just the right length to read before going to sleep at night or when you just have a short time to read.

 I did not see anywhere on Smashwords where credit was given to the person who designed the book cover.  Maybe I missed it but I wanted to point out that gather member James T designed it.

I felt honored to know many or even most of the authors from the gather community.  I rate this book a 5 star and recommend it to everyone.
