Hi! I'm Steve Vernon and I'd love to scare you. Along the way I'll entertain you. I guarantee a giggle as well.

If I listed all of the books I've written I'd bore you - and I am allergic to boring.

Instead, let me recommend one single book of mine.

Pick up SUDDEN DEATH OVERTIME for an example of true Steve Vernon storytelling. It's hockey and vampires for folks who love hockey and vampires - and for folks who don't!

For more up-to-date info please follow my blog at:

yours in storytelling,

Joe Lansdale's BULLETS AND FIRE!

Bullets and Fire Bullets and Fire by Joe R. Lansdale

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I am a big fan of Joe Lansdale and his writing. I even met the man once at a Horror Writers of America convention in New York City. He is a good man and a great writer.

One of Joe Lansdale's books will stand you on the back of your heels like a good stiff right cross.

If it doesn't hit you that way, you probably ought not to be reading a Read more of this blog post »

Tatterdemon by Steve Vernon
"This book didn't scare the crap out of me. There are things in it that are scary but I'm somewhat numb to the graphic violence. I don't want to give spoilers but Maddy, and her back-story that slowly unfolds over the course of the book, oh my goddess" Read more of this review »

Quotes by Steve Vernon  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“At the end of the day this is nothing more than a blog. It's nice to hit them high notes - but REALLY - how significant do you think something that sort of sounds like the sound of a flatulent frog being run over by a clown car really needs to be?”
Steve Vernon

“You can't live the story of your life properly without the occasional addition of a little sudden drama.”
Steve Vernon, Sinking Deeper

“So as near as I could tell the end of the world began roughly about the time that Billy Carver’s butt rang about halfway through the War of 1812.”
Steve Vernon, Flash Virus Episode One

“It was the kind of talk that made me want to break off a limb and take to whacking her and that bunch of hypocrites across the back of the head.”
Joe R. Lansdale, Edge of Dark Water

“What did grown men see in the rattle of sticks, the slashing of steel over ice and hockey sweaters worn way beyond funk?”
Steve Vernon

“It is midnight in the hard part of town. The mask is itching like it always does. The ragged end of my cape is soaking in a puddle of something I don't want to guess about. I'm crouched behind a kicked-in aluminum trash can. It stinks of rotted meat and drunkard's piss - and I feel right at home. (from Nothing to Lose)”
Steve Vernon

“At the end of the day this is nothing more than a blog. It's nice to hit them high notes - but REALLY - how significant do you think something that sort of sounds like the sound of a flatulent frog being run over by a clown car really needs to be?”

“Science, the largest religion of the twentieth century, had become somewhat tarnished by images of exploding space shuttles, crack babies, and a generation of complacent Americans who had allowed the television to raise their children.”
Jim Butcher, Storm Front
