Summary

A collection of twisted, disturbing, and downright weird stories about bovine abominations, bestiality, zombies, the birth of the anti-christ, and a trip through purgatory...among other disgusting and degenerate diversions.

Also contains a cow-themed bonus story by Matt Shaw and a short story sequel to one of my all time favorite books, Meat, Leftovers by Michael Bray.

Praise for Cow Made God:

"Mark Nye is one of the new breed of British writers ready to take the horror world by storm. Sometimes weird, sometimes fantastic, sometimes just plain twisted, his fiction will take you places you don’t want to go, and you won’t come back unscathed." (Christian Saunders, author of Sker House and Human Waste)

"A unique collection, where we are subjected to a host of broken and twisted tales which are reminiscent of the comic series, Tales from the Crypt." (Matt Hickman, author of Amnesia, Jeremy, and Sinister Scribblings)

Take a walk on the dark side of society...

Cow Made God & Other Abominations by Mark Nye, Matt Shaw, Michael Bray and narrated by S. W. Salzman is a set of depraved and disturbing short stories. I would recommend if you are looking for something to shock you, take a walk on the dark side of society, or if this is your typical listen.

Most of the stories held my interest, but some left me wanting just a little more (which would have kept me engaged on a better level). Overall, I give it 3 ½ stars. I would listen to another book by this author and narrator. Revolving themes: animals, religion, and starting fresh doesn’t always mean better (grass isn’t always greener on the other side)...

The narrator, S. W. Salzman, did a great job with these! I would listen to him again.

~A brief description of the stories~
1) Cow Made God- A butcher’s worst nightmare. Approximately 8 minutes.
2) Creationist Nightmare- How the three universes came about/Gods/Demi-gods. Approximately 14 minutes.
3) Eleven Lords Leaping- The last lord remains, but for how long? Approximately 22 minutes.
4) Mother is God- Silence of the Lambs feel to it (Can’t say much without giving away spoilers, but lots of twists and turns). Approximately 23 minutes.
5) Man Made Cow- A veterinarian meets the other abominations. Approximately 15 minutes.
6) The Unholy Birth- Can’t say much without giving spoilers (Sorry). Approximately 9 minutes.

8) Hallow Field- A zombie tale. Approximately 13 minutes.

12) A Lady and Her Bovine- Fan fiction becomes your worst nightmare. Approximately 17 minutes.
13) The Unfortunate Fortune- Winning the lottery leads a man to an unusual sexual adventure. Approximately 20 minutes.
14) The authors note about how this book came about. Approximately 3 minutes.
15) And His Name Will Be Known Throughout the Land (by Matt Shaw)- A bovine court case. Approximately 11 minutes.
16) Leftovers (by Michael Bray)- A deal gone wrong or right depending on your angle. Approximately 23 minutes.

What??!?

This is the kind of collection, and of stories, that make me wonder how I'd take it if I haven't gone as deep into extreme horror and the bizarre as I already have. Despite being pretty well-versed in that side of the genre there were definitely still moments of what the hell and ewww that hit me at different times, but I feel that I was definitely able to appreciate the stories better because those feelings came and went and left the overall impact and there was definitely an impact.

It's hard to pick a favorite because the stories were pretty even and none of them slacked in comparison or anything and it was a real treat to have a follow up to Michael Bray's Meat to end it on which is a solid novel that everyone who enjoyed this should check out as well.

Definitely Different

Well this was definitely on the weird and twisted side. I found it funny but I do have a twisted sense of humor. The stories are so out there it's hard to describe. There are some pretty sexual parts in it so reader/listener beware. If you're up for a laugh you have to grab this one.

Wild!

This was straight up my alley. Seriously, almost nothing is sacred here, and you should expect vile and horrible things.

I'm a huge fan of gore and disturbing imagery, and this collection goes above and beyond my expectations. I guess over the years I've become a bit jaded, but several times the stories had me wide-eyed, grimacing, and imagining how I would be reacting myself to some of these situations (probably dying).

You have your standard gore, a revenge yarn, bugs, zombies, blasphemy, unexpected horrible twists, perversions, and cows.

My favorites are:
Cow Made God
Man Made Cow
The Unholy Birth
Purgatory
School's Out
Lisa's New Life

There are a couple of stories by other authors included as well, and I enjoyed Leftovers as well.

Finally, the author helpfully recommends a few of his favorite books, which I will definitely be checking out, especially Meat.

The narrator does a fine job.

Cow Made God & Other Abominations

This is an eclectic collection of stories. Each one brings the listener into a new world full of interesting characters. As with many collections there were some stories that I enjoyed more than others but as a whole this was a nice listen. I found the darker stories more to my liking and enjoyed getting lost in those worlds. Many of these stories are not for the faint of heart and those afraid of a little gore. There is good world building and characters that are well fleshed out. Narrator S.W. Salzman keeps the narration going at a good pace keeping the listener engaged.

Wow

Every story was another twist and turn. Most were great while some were just to much.
