Format: Paperback
Hawg is actually the first book I've read of Steven Shrewsbury and what an impressive track record he has. There are some great scenes in the book that can easily be envisioned as a movie, the creepy opening pages and especially Hawg's killing rampage inside the Ambrose Brothers Printing Company. The writing style reminded me a little of Cormac McCarthy if he were ever to write a horror novel about a barnyard monster. There was enough gore, not to mention a lot of bikers and townfolk getting parts of their manhood handed to them on a platter, courtesy of Hawg. Very convincing creature feature.

Shrewsbury arrives with great modern horror novel 10 Sep 2008
By John Palisano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
HAWG begins with a buck, bang, and slash. Quite a stage-setting for what's to follow. The story becomes more and more intense as the book goes on. HAWG is something quite unique: a brand new monster. Recently, we've become deluged with murderers and torturers, and even zombies. Steven Shrewsbury's fresh imagination manages to blend the elemental tension of the high-stress modern horror story with the sideshow curiosity inherent in so many of our famous monster stories. Also, the book is quite well produced, I must say. So often, small press releases are plagued with poor design, typos, hard to read fonts. Not the case here. In fact, the quality rivals that of many top shelf house paperbacks I purchase. Cheers, and beware HAWG!

A brand new monster 9 Dec 2008
By Bret Jordan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
HAWG is not for the squeamish or those who get nauseous at the site of blood, or internal organs for that matter. Steven Shrewsbury's novel is a violent roller coaster ride that takes the reader to the heights of depravity and then drops them screaming into violence and gore. The novel is far more than just a gore-fest though. The characters come to life on the pages, some for their heroic qualities and others for their less than perfect personalities. The main villain, HAWG, is a savage beast and Steven has masterfully created a monster that doesn't fit the classical mold. It's not a werewolf, or a vampire, or a zombie, but something new that comes brutally to life - it's just HAWG. If you want a horror story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and squirming the whole way then HAWG is just the story for you.

Lovecraftian horror on the loose 13 Jun 2009
By Richard Sparrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this with trepedition, fearing a dog story. I was relieved to find only an escapee from Lovecraft's "The Rats in the Walls." Minus Lovecraft's purple prose and with plenty of sex and violence.

Shrewsbury is a wonderful person and a fine storyteller, if you have the stomach for it.

Rip roaring read! 18 Jun 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Hawg" starts up with nothing short of an eye opener, and sets up the tone of the novel very quickly. Stephen Shrewsbury expertly goes about describing a well thought out population of Miller's Fork, and how they have their own set of problems and conflicts that interweave with each other and ultimately with a ever hungry feral monster Hawg that is about to tear their community apart.
The book has a few eye opening moments that could make Irvine Welsh blush in envy, at first I found this confronting but it was there for a reason; rather than just for pure shock value! Hawg is one hell of a read, and a real page turner of a book, great story and probably one of the best monster novel that I've had the pleasure of reading! This ones got bite ... this is an action packed horror novel that doesn't hold back.
