I've been lucky enough to get some advanced review coverage on this one, and here's what the readers are saying:
Your stomach will turn, your throat will restrict, and jaw will clench tighter than a bull’s arsehole in fly season.
- S. Elliot Brandis, author of Irradiated and Once Upon A Time At The End Of The World
Consumption is wonderfully paced and a real treat for horror fans. ... I read it with the lights off and my Kindle screen turned up, and it was a totally immersive and satisfying experience.
- Franklin Kendrick, author of The Entity series.
Hicks takes the reader to some twisted, nightmarish places and if you’re a horror fan with a strong constitution, add Consumption to your reading list – you won’t regret it.
- Teri Polen, Books & Such
wonderfully macabre! Cleverly thought out, I was both disgusted and excited by this tale. This a MUST read for horror fans.- Great Book Escapes
Consumption means a lot to me, and it's a bit of an ode to the sort of horror I love. It's a gory, fatalistic creature feature, full of atmosphere and creepiness. I had a tremendous amount of fun writing it, and I hope that joy comes through in the story. I've already written about how this story came about, and it's a huge departure from my debut work, Convergence.
I talked about all this with S. Elliot Brandis over the weekend, and he'll be posting his interview with me over at his site. Keep an eye out for it soon. I think it'll be a pretty good read, if I do say so myself.
Then, head over to your favorite eBook hustler and plunk down a mere 99 cents for a good old-fashioned Halloween treat.
