A Hat Full of Stories: Three Weird West Tales
Publisher: Stark Raven Publishing
This isn’t John Wayne.
Lone Star is just a beer.
Forget about the Alamo.
Here then are a trio of Texas tales of terror spun from the fevered brain of a nightmare-riding cowboy.
Have you wondered just what sort of a cargo is in those big eighteen-wheeler rigs that prowl the midnight highways? In “North of Bigfoot, Bound for Memphis” Steve Vernon will answer that wonder with a what-if that will leave you wishing you hadn’t asked.
Have you ever stepped in bubblegum? Ever stuck your fingers together with Krazy Glue? Ever stepped in sheep dip and tried to shake the stink off? Stick your nose in the pages of “Jumping Chollo Will Not Die” and find out what funk really is.
And if you have any brain cells left after subjecting yourself to those first two yarns then try and wrap your brain around the Frankenstein-influenced tale “Two Good Hands and a Hold-out”.
The eyes of Texas have never looked so bloodshot.
WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING ABOUT STEVE VERNON'S WRITING!
"If Harlan Ellison, Richard Matheson and Robert Bloch had a three-way sex romp in a hot tub, and then a team of scientists came in and filtered out the water and mixed the leftover DNA into a test tube, the resulting genetic experiment would most likely grow up into Steve Vernon." – Bookgasm
"Steve Vernon is something of an anomaly in the world of horror literature. He's one of the freshest new voices in the genre although his career has spanned twenty years. Writing with a rare swagger and confidence, Steve Vernon can lead his readers through an entire gamut of emotions from outright fear and repulsion to pity and laughter." - Cemetery Dance
