Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the hard streets.

These are four of the nastiest stories I have ever written.

  • "Leftovers" - What's left of a man when everything worth losing has already been lost? Is vengeance worth any price? Ask Father Simon. Leftovers is a story of redemption, sacrifice, and leftovers. It is a story of the bottom and what you find lying beneath it. It is a novella-length story that will shock even the most hardened reader.
  • "Statistic" - Just when you think you don't count anymore you come to the bridge and you find what you really are counted for.
  • "Soul Survivor" - You didn't really think the devil was just after souls, now did you? This one is more weird than nasty but who cares? It all comes out in the wash....
  • "Dopple Dribble" - A dark and nasty yarn about a man who is haunted by a basketball. This might sound a little goofy but once you get into this tale you are never going to sit comfortably when you hear the sound of a basketball being dribbled down the evening sidewalk.

Critic Reviews

"[Leftovers] is as dark and grimy as the back alleys of skid row - displays author Vernon at his finest: just when you think the horror can't get any worse, he employs his bizarre-style to twist 'Leftovers' into a surreal story that you just won't be able to shake off. 'Leftovers' is a must for Steve Vernon fans, as well as those who like their horror shocking and off-centered - and most amazingly, there's still bits of the author's trademark humor despite the seriousness of the story." ( Horror Fiction Review)

Good Collection of Horror Shorts

This is a collection of short horror stories that were a lot of fun to listen to. I liked how they were all quite different from each other, and spanned a wide spectrum. Steve Vernon has an incredible imagination and he really shows it in these stories. These actually seemed quite tame compared to some of his other stories I have listened to. Leftovers was by far my favorite since a vengeful priest is one of the coolest ideas ever. Father Simon was a great character and I would love to hear his story in a full length novel. Ben Maclaine did a great job with the narration. I thought he really nailed Leftovers. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Grief: The Uninvited Party Guest That Never Leaves

My patience is starting to ware thin with Steve. After listening to Capt Nothing, Vol One, I keep singing his praises, yet he keeps coming through with half A** efforts. The majority of this recording is his first story "Leftovers". It has nine chapters and it rambles something terrible. It is like he sits down to write and does not know where the story is going until he has enough words. Leftovers, had a good beginning and a good ending, but everything in between was just rambling bull sh*t. He will says things that are interesting in themselves, but when put in to context with the story, just don't fit.

The next two stories are average and short, which seems to be Steve's best length. Just as I am about ready to give up on the guy, comes "Dopple Dribble". This was a spooky story, that was very well written and renewed my faith in Steve's abilities.

As I have mentioned in other reviews, if you are interested in Steve Vernon, listen to Captain Nothing Vol One first. If you are a fan of South Park or Family Guy, you may like it. If you hate or don't get those shows then save your money.

This is very adult material and some will be very offended. This first story has a rape scene of a little boy that the main character knows is going to happen and lets happen, I did think that was over the line and not necessary.

I will try Vernon one more time, but please have a plot in your next story.
