    This book is a collection of short horror stories and probably the best short horror stories I have ever read.

If you love horror, this is a must read. The first story is Special Delivery, about a pizza delivery boy, Jack, who has plans with his girl Shelly. His plans are averted when his boss says he has to make a delivery out of town. He goes, looking forward to seeing Shelly later, not even knowing what is about to happen. This was my favorite of the four. The second, Shopping, was also very good. About a disfigured man, who lives in the woods near a town, and what he does to survive. Oh my my!! Kentucky Fried, the third, is about a man, his life, his life with his "out there" wife, and what happens to them and the whole world. I felt kind of sorry for him. The final story, Television Eye, hmmmm, I wonder if... Kyle M. Scott has done an excellent job here. A definite 5 stars!! You don't see many authors be so bold with this kind of horror. I loved it and the fact that he decided to take his ideas and write them down for people to read, probably knowing that some would not approve. Very much looking forward to reading his novel when it comes out.

Each story is handled with care as though they are built from their own and not forced to fit a certain style.

    Kyle M. Scott is a phenomenal extreme horror writer hailing from the dark and mysterious Scotland. I only just discovered him a few weeks ago and I'm quickly reading anything he has to offer. It doesn't take many pages to tell that he is also a very intelligent man, his writings are deep in satire, social commentary, political and cultural unrest, plus copious amounts of dark humor! Nothing to fear for a simpleton like myself though,(yea, I actually had to double check some of the meanings of tho Kyle M.

It doesn't take many pages to tell that he is also a very intelligent man, his writings are deep in satire, social commentary, political and cultural unrest, plus copious amounts of dark humor! Nothing to fear for a simpleton like myself though,(yea, I actually had to double check some of the meanings of those terms :/) all of these are simply catalysts...undertones to tell his delightfully deviant and depraved stories. This book was his debut into the new literary realm of shocking and explosive horror. It contains 4 short stories all very unique and delightfully heinous . He has no boundaries and he does not play it safe. Definitely not for those with weak stomachs or those without a dirty and dark sense of humor. All of these tales take place in the melted pot that is America, rife with sins and sinners alike. **I AM American so I can say that. Gooo USA!! LOL Special Delivery ~ I had already read this one as part of V ~ 5 stories 5 authors, and since I enjoyed it so much the first time I went ahead and read it again. It's about a sweet young man named Jack, he's on the poor side of life and peddles pizza's for Antonio's pizzeria. His lazy somewhat jerk of a boss makes him do an after hours delivery waaaay outta town. It's a big delivery to a rich man so the bossman of course, volunteers Jack for it. He had plans with Shelly, his long time friend turned love of his life, she is also poor and aspires for bigger and better things. She is surprisingly understanding when he tells her of the delay which only makes him adore her more. Right from the get go he starts feeling a creepy vibe during his drive, like he is being watched or followed. After the long drive he pulls up to the most beautiful exquisite mansion he has ever seen and first meets the strange and ominous butler who freaks him out a bit. Then comes the eccentric millionaire, he's in awe of this man and readily listens to an awkward yet riveting story of the millionaires humble beginnings and how he turned into a rich and powerful man. It doesn't take long though for Jack's gut to urge him into a fight or flight mode but ~ TOO LATE. Shhhhh....I think it might be the Illuminati... Shopping ~ My FAVORITE!! I couldn't get enough of this story...I read it twice! I mean come on, who wouldn't want to be inside the mind of a cannibalistic mutant half wit. I know I always have! The story centers around Roland, a true Hills Have Eyes kind of guy, he lives in a cave with his mother and brother. They have survived for years by pilfering the surrounding campsites for their prey. Mom's a bit old so she sends her inbred spawns out to do the dirty deeds. They rampage and tag team any and all unsuspecting campers, no one is safe or off limits. Her only rule is to stay away from the actual "snivilisation". Roland fancies himself an intellectual, he learns most of his knowledge of the ways of the world through childrens picture books that he snatches from campsites...along with the children. After years of an abundant food source, the campsites become barren as people believe what used to be only urban legends. Through a series of fortunate events, it's just Roland left in the cave all by his gruesome. Starving and without Mothers forbiddance, he decides to venture down the hills to that snivilisation for a happy meal. This story was equal parts hilarious and disturbing! This story also has an awesome little subplot that leaves you cheering on Roland in the end!! PLEASE Kyle, in your next anthology collection continue on with Roland and his travels!! Kentucky Fried ~ About an average nice guy named Donnie who's best friend is a Greek God type of stud. By Donnie's own admission he is NOT fuck ugly, he knows he couldn't compete with Gerard Butler in the honey department but feels as though he could snag a chic or 2 away from Steve Buscemi. Lol Usually his ascetically pleasing friend gets the hotties while Donnie gets the below par ones, when they go out to the clubs. But then he meets the beautiful and breathtaking Kate and she is interested in HIM!! She's perfect in every way, a female version of him really. She's a party girl, loves to have fun, let loose, drinking, drugs, SEX. Of course he marries her and they are blissfully happy, for awhile. Kate's hard partying ways get out of hand and after a couple major issues, Donnie urges her into treatment. Well, she kinda got a little over treated, did a double 360 and became a devout bible thumper. She turns their house into numerous shrines of worship, she walks around the place singing hymns like they're the top 40. There goes bliss, there goes profanity, there goes drinking and drugs, there goes sex unless for procreation, and here comes random spontaneous combustions. Delectable story served rotisserie style!! Television Eye ~ This 'all too real tale' is about a Texan named Mike set in the year 2066. He loves his country, his beer, and his God. He's a good ole boy, honest and humble and enjoys the simplistic life. One day he's hanging out on his couch in his trailer, sipping a beer and smoking a Marlboro and watching the news. Same old same old...wars, political upheaval, propaganda... Then he has part epiphany and part panic attack. He's always thought the media leaned too far one way or the other serving their own sponsors and greed and such but now he FEELS the hypocrisy through every fiber of his being. He knows the media are all right wing extremists spouting blatant lies for their money hungry one world order agenda kind of bullshit. He utters 3 words out loud..."Fuck these wars!". Well, the pretty little news lady stops mid sentence, looks him square in the eye, and reams him a new asshole. His behavior is unacceptable and comes with SEVERE consequences. So, is he a nutjob or did he just "wake up"?? Big Brother...terrifying! The key to extraordinary EXTREME horror writing for me is; does it make me cringe, sequel, gag, laugh, bark, expel some of my own juices ~ tmi??!! teehehe YEEESSS to all of the above with this fanfuckintastic collection of shorts!! Consumed 2 has been out since Nov, it doesn't have but a fraction of the readers of this one so far. It's 6 more fabulous stories and I highly recommend all those that have read this, to read that. Plus there is a tasty little treat hidden in the dark corridors of Room 7 at The Oceanside Inn! Mr Scott, you got a cheerleader in me!! ;)

    Consumed. The word has many meanings but in modern day society, consumption is associated with greed, excess and gluttony. Fight Club said it best: "Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need." It's a fair summary of life nowadays what with the internet and excess at our very fingertips. People don't need to go out and get it when it's hand delivered to you and, hell, sometimes they don't need it full stop. The human race succumbs to this o Consumed.

Fight Club said it best: "Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need." It's a fair summary of life nowadays what with the internet and excess at our very fingertips. People don't need to go out and get it when it's hand delivered to you and, hell, sometimes they don't need it full stop. The human race succumbs to this on a daily basis. Consumerism. The downfall of humanity. Which is the basic premise for Kyle M. Scott's horror debut. A quartet of short stories, all tackling the word Consumed from a different perspective. Religion, an inbred mountain man and a pizza delivery guy are some of the simplistic highlights on display here. Right off the bat, these stories are fresh, unique and very violent in places. As each story progresses, it's refreshing to see the author tackle different styles and characters, some innocent, some unfortunate and some downright evil. It keeps the flow going and each story benefits from this, keeping it fresh and alive. Each story also stands alone as an excellent horror short story, with shades of Laymon, Herbert and King all present, and it's clear that the author is a horror fan, reader and writer and is influenced by the greats. The combination is an excellent one and Scott tackles the stories with expertise and originality. I was disappointed when the book finished, I blazed through in one sitting. Being a debut author myself, I know how hard it is to release your first book and get it noticed. This book needs/deserves to be noticed. If Scott continues to write material like this, he will be a force to be reckoned with in the indie horror scene. Consider me a fan. 5*, of course. With a debut this excellent, the only way is up. I'm already looking forward to Scott's feature length novel, which is tantalisingly teased in Consumed. If you like horror, this deserves to be read. Excellent work!

    Nerve-shattering and insightful Consumed volume 1 is a highly original set of stories which both absorbed me and repulsed me in turns. An obvious thing that will strike readers is the graphic content - this collection is not aimed at those with a weak stomach but the blood-spattered cover art gives a bit of a hint in that direction.

There's much more going on in these stories than that, though and that's what really surprised me, The characters are well-drawn and feel real, recognizable. Their predicaments are horrifying, absurd, tragic and always gripping. Some of these characters are easy to sympathize with, and some are downright awful, but what Kyle Scott made me do is care what happens - whether I wanted something good or bad, I actually started to hope. It's rare fiction that has made me do that. With dark humour threaded throughout, Kyle has deconstructed not only human bodies in his stories, but various strands of modern life: private and industrial greed, religion, relationships, the rich-poor divide, Kyle's characters pose questions or give insights on all of these subjects and more. Intelligent, comic and compelling. When you peel back the flesh of Consumed you will find a lot going on under there - and the bonus sample of Kyle Scott's upcoming full-length novella was a nice inclusion. I will be keeping my eyes out for it. So to speak.

Being a horror fan, and reading books by some of the best horror authors in the world, I was even shocked by how good this tale was! If the rest of the book was as good as this tale? I was already getting over excited! I was not disappointed. The tales that followed were just as plentiful of gore, shocks, twists and fantastic description and imagination. The stories maybe not for everyone’s taste ,especially tale one Special Delivery, but its horror and its supposed to shock..isn't it? The characters in each of the tales are well thought out and mix well with the story with appropriate dialogue and fantastic descriptive text. Scott’s twisted imagination runs amok in the book, releasing twists, one liners and description of the greatest calibre. For a lover a short stories this book is a must in your collection. Scott has begun his writing career at break neck speed, the question is in my opinion is, Is his career going to be a sprint? Or a marathon ? I’m hoping for the latter, here is hoping he can maintain this quality of work with his next novel. One I am eagerly waiting for.

It’s a brilliantly constructed and highly descriptive story. I won’t say much about the book, because words are not merely suffice to experience the journey on which, this highly addictive blood bathed book take readers to. Now, looking forward to DEVILS DAY-author’s next work, the teaser of which you’ll find inside.

    Consumed by Kyle M. Scott is a short story collection that is both deeply and delightfully inspired by the horror boom of the 1980’s. The story ‘Special Delivery’ smacks of the cult classic ‘The Society’, while shades of ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ come alive in the short but saucy ‘Shopping’. ‘Television Eye’ is reminiscent of King’s ‘Quitters, Inc’.

    Some people bring out the absolute worst in a person. You know the type, right? The hipster in his post-ironic, Wall Street braces and bow tie standing statue-still, thoughtfully playing with his post-ironic beard or his faux-NHS specs at the front of your favourite band’s gig. Dancing never occurring to the bastard. The dickhead who puts spikes out to deprive the homeless of a good-night’s sleep, defending a 6 foot by three foot slab of rock he calls his. NO? How about the asshole correspondent on Some people bring out the absolute worst in a person. You know the type, right? The hipster in his post-ironic, Wall Street braces and bow tie standing statue-still, thoughtfully playing with his post-ironic beard or his faux-NHS specs at the front of your favourite band’s gig. Dancing never occurring to the bastard. The dickhead who puts spikes out to deprive the homeless of a good-night’s sleep, defending a 6 foot by three foot slab of rock he calls his. NO? How about the asshole correspondent on regional BBC news who gets you pebble-dashing your TV screen with your morning cereal as he’s telling you that a hundred people marched in your city centre protesting Israel’s war on Palestine when you witnessed 10,000 with your own eyes. If not those, then the best friend who talks you into one more drink/bar/gamble/lap dance and takes a step to the side to photograph your inevitable meltdown. That guy, yeah, him. Kyle Scott is such a creature. With his debut work he effortlessly takes you to places you don’t wish to go or acknowledge that you have tucked away in the darkest, most twisted corridors of your mind. All that shit that you ignore or hide, to blend in with the other fucks all around you all doing the same damn thing. This heartless fucker spares nothing in stripping bare the very best and the very worst of humanity in both everyday and supremely horrific acts. Kyle knows which buttons to push, the sick bastard has pushed most of those buttons in his own damaged wee psyche, so he knows how to fuck you in the head. He knows which threads to pull at and he knows how to make you invest yourself in a story or a character, how to force you to recoil in horror, sneer in derision and smile or laugh sadistically when you know you shouldn’t. Always graphic, his narrative slowly picks away at the scabby veneer of each of his cast to reveal their true depravity or heroism or weakness. He strips the poor souls of their illusions and drops the veil of society, presenting them with a moment to rise, fall or be devoured-sometimes literally. He’s a sick fuck, this guy, but his real strength, if you can call sadism a strength, is in conveying- in revealing- the true monsters lurking behind society. Kyle explores consumerism at its most base and engages the reader’s brain without ever descending into preachy rhetoric. This subtle tugging at the reader’s sensibilities and values, coupled with the effective characterisation and incredibly descriptive acts of brutality, propels and plummets the reader through this collection at breakneck speed and makes him/her squirm in recognition of their own flaws. In Scott’s second short, ‘Shopping’ he uses this skill to great effect, presenting us with his most tragic, simple, heroically honest character in the form of a hideously misshapen cannibal named Roland on a shopping trip. He’s a manipulative little bastard, Kyle Scott. You’ve been warned.

It opens with a young guy working at a pizza place whose boss doesn't care that the kid has a date---he is forced to make one last delivery. A delivery to the middle of nowhere, in a huge house with a creepy owner--- and no cell phone battery. The scene soon turns into something out of Rosemary's Baby or the Kelly Preston movie Spellbinder. Read it and you will cringe! The other stories are well written also. The writer is British and the setting is the US. My only complaint is the use of British terms and spellings (which he posted in the front of the book to explain the UK styles rather than American). For example, a Kentucky man refers to himself as a "young chap". I think UK readers would greatly enjoy this, but Americans may get distracted--Americans may find the book and the author a more credible read if it were written in the US style. HOWEVER, with that being said, if the reader does allow that small distraction and dismisses this book, then the reader is choosing to ignore a very well detailed and interesting work by a new author I am sure the horror genre will be discussing in the future.

    In this collection of short stories, Scott grabs the reader by the throat and squeezes until the last story is finished.

The reader can feel the loathing that the couple in the story have for each other and when one of them gets "what they deserve" I found myself cheering the gory demise of the victim. In another tale "Television Eye" the protagonist in the story has to do something to his own body in order to save his young daughter. His act is so unthinkably hideous, that I found myself trying to stop reading............................but I was so hooked into the story that I had to read on until the bloody conclusion. With these short stories Scott has entrenched himself as a genius in the world of horror.

All together, I really enjoyed this collection. I recommend this for people who aren't squeamish. If you are easily disturbed by shocking levels of violence, I would suggest something milder.

    Consumed is, quite possibly, the most intriguing set of nightmares I have ever read. Fear and gore are tempered by dark humor throughout each of the four stories. This compliation of self-mutliation, spontaneous combustion, and cannibalism is sure to keep you entertained even as its haunting visions keep you up at night. Well done, Kyle M. Scott; I am truly frightened.

    Blood Sadly nowadays is very difficult to find good horror, and with this book is the same. Put sex, blood, amputations and so on and the results is this book. Good or bad? You can decide, honestly is not a bad reading, simple but not bad. Few different original tales.

Three different stories basically short, told with no connection except for untimely yet unexpected actions and endings. With such engagement, wish the tale could continue. Maybe there is more to come? Kyle does a magnificent job of describing not only the landscape but the gory behavior and actions taking your imagination on the same ride as the characters in the story unfortunately experiencing it. He provides a level of suspense with unpredictability that keeps the heart beating at high rate. One aspect of the style I liked was the building of suspense along with the detailed descriptions allowing my imagination and emotions to have a similar horrific experience. I went back n forth with wanting more, yet fearful of what would come next. The stories are not too long yet leaving u wanting to know what happens next. The author has a talent of creating a great horror story structure like those in the horror movies. Character development, particularly the main characters, despite the stories being relatively short is excellent. I clearly found myself feeling for Jack in the first story and then oh boy!!! I rarely give ratings of 5 but this is very close. The reason for the rating provided is due to the shortness of the stories. Want more. Being that most novels need a rating, I give it a 4.5. Clearly if you enjoy suspense, horror or gore, even with a sense of sensualness(I won’t say more), you definitely should check it out. A must read!!

It was a pretty short read overall that I spread out on my own being that I had it on my phone's kindle app and haven't read a whole lot on there but definitely worth the time that I read it and I would be looking forward to finding other works by the author to read.

    Sick, guttural, horrific and brilliant. Kyle presents a collection of quite brilliant splatter stories that are designed to horrify and sicken in equal measure. If you are sensitive in any way, then this is not the book for you. But if you like your horror dripping with blood, guts and bound towards your inner fears via the gut then this book is perfect. Kyles work is unique, unrelenting and unbelievably good. It is worth every star I gave it.
