    *3.5 StarsSudden Death Overtime has a great pull and concept. Northern Labrador would be an idyllic setting for vampires, especially in the winter with the reduced daylight hours and the isolation from large populations - with all of the police, cameras and media that goes along with major cities. The vampires can go from town to town taking their victims before any organized resistance could be mounted.Now, you find yourself living in this small, isolated community in Northern Labrador, how do [...]

    Sudden Death Overtime by Steve Vernon is one of those books that scares you while making you laugh. If you haven't gotten your fill of hockey this year due to the NHL strike, this book can help. Hope's End is a tough little town on the Northern Labrador Coast of Canada. When the weather turns cold, old-time hockey player Sprague Deacon and his three elderly friends set up an ice rink and everyone in town plays hockey. So when a black painted tour bus full of vampires comes to town and people sta [...]

    This short collection includes the novella, Sudden Death Overtime, the short story, “Time Out,” and a preview of Nothing to Lose. For the purposes of the review, I will be including my ratings and responses to the former two, as I do not like to review partial works (but with that said, I did find the preview of Nothing to Lose an enjoyable read). Sudden Death Overtime is a short work that begins very fluidly—almost literary in prose—and slowly transforms into a horror comedy with absurd [...]

    From my blog: serialdistractionsIt doesn’t take long after an ominous black tour bus full of bloodsucking denizens of the damned arrives in a sleepy coastal village in Northern Labrador for people to start dying and the local church to go up in flames. Unfortunately, these vicious fiends are about to find out the only thing the old timers of Hope’s End do better than drink rum is play old school, rough-and-tumble, hockey.What makes this story by Steve Vernon (Long Horn, Big Shaggy and Devil [...]

    When a sinister black bus rolls into the sleepy town of Labrador, Canada, townsfolk start disappearing, churches mysteriously burn down, and a bunch of grumpy foulmouthed ex-hockey playing coots have to play one final game to save their town, their souls, and their sanity.Sudden Death, Overtime by Steve Vernon’s has it all: vampires, gory deaths, comedic relief, stubborn old people who don’t know when to quit, and the perfect wintery setting for the ultimate undead showdown. Mr Vernon is a p [...]

    I received a copy of this novella from the author in exchange for a review. I am a huge paranormal romance fan but I also have a secret love for horror as well. So, even though it's fun to play with the nice vampires, every now and then it's also fun to step into the world of the ones that aren't so nice. This is a great little taste of this author's writing style. And, at the end of this novella we get a small teaser of his book Nothing to Lose - The Adventures of Captain Nothing. It is a great [...]

    I grew up watching my grandfather watch hockey. Every Saturday night he'd sit there on his big black leather Lazy-Boy recliner, thumping the side of his fist against the arm of the chair, cursing and cheering at the Toronto Maple Leafs.I grew up listening to that wonderful theme music that a pack of lawyers stole away - Ba-dum-ba-da-da-daaa!I grew up in a small town where it was deemed more important to build a second hockey arena - rather than an indoor public swimming pool. I grew up knowing w [...]

    A group of old men, who played hockey nearly all of their lives, take on the occupants of a mysterious black bus.This fun little novella shows just how tough hockey players are. Especially when they're armed with garlic and broken hockey sticks, as stakes.Set in Labrador, in the province of Newfoundland - hockey country, for sure. I figured this would be fun between playoff games for Lord Stanley's cup, and I wasn't wrong. Plus, any story which mentions Gordon Lightfoot's classic, "The Wreck of [...]

    Steve Vernon is a master with character descriptions. Immediately these fictional people leap of the page and transform into tangible fully formed beings in your mind, from the very first sentence. His style is extremely reminiscent of Stephen King's rich and deep character portrayal. This is a fun plot, which I enjoyed, but the characters by far steal the show. I can't wait to read more of Vernon's novellas and novels. I'm sure I'll be in great hands.

    Some of you may have already read this story before - but there's been some changes made. Quite a few folks wanted to know just WHERE the vampires came from. So I'm telling you that it's all in here. This version tells the entire backstory to why exactly the vampires have come to town.And it's currently available ONLY on Kobo.

    Review originally posted on my website, From the Mind of TatlockHockey and Vampires. Who would've thought that these two could go so well together. I certainly didn't, but author Steve Vernon crafted up a wonderful, quirky, sometimes violent story with Sudden Death Overtime, about a bunch of past their prime geezers, who love hockey and the vicious band of blood thirsty vampires, that crash the small town of Hope's End, Labrador. If this sounds like something you would want to read (I can't see [...]

    Sudden Death Overtime is fun, cinematic and the characters are engaging and quirkily slanted. Very much embracing the movie of this story in his head, Vernon writes in tight, visual scenes, and doesn't skimp on the dialogue; you could easily imagine watching the story unfold on a big screen. His tale of vampires invading an iced-in Canadian town has overtures of 30 Days of Night about it, and his very unromantic antagonists are as eerie as they are vicious, just as they are in Niles' vision. His [...]

    Hockey Saves Hope End From Vampires - if Hope End's has a newspaper, that would be the headline the day after this book takes place. I loved the characters and how fleshed out they were. The characters immediately pulled me into the world of Hope's End. Judith Two Bear depressed the hell out of me, probably because of something that's easy for me to do with Vernon's work: I immediately begin plugging in people I know in real life as the characters starring in the movie-version that runs in my he [...]

    Steve Vernon is an author who writes like no one I have read thus far. His freedom with the written word is astonishing. It’s as if every thought he has spills out onto paper and has to be shared. Every dark thought, as applies here.Sudden Death Overtime does not fit my usual reading, because horror is not a genre I particularly enjoy, but I expect this is a dark fantasy unlike most others. This book (novelette because it is short) is sure to satisfy readers who like this genre, but it is not [...]

    How could I not? Hockey and horror, it's such a logical fit yet there is so little of it. Steve Vernon's SUDDEN DEATH OVERTIME blends the two themes perfectly. Vernon is able to weave ice hockey, vampires, old legends and creepy moods into a seamless, descriptive story. If you are a fan of hockey, or sports or a good old fashioned horror monster story this is a must read.The most striking part of reading SUDDEN DEATH OVERTIME is the authors apparent lust and respect for the game of hockey. It is [...]

    What do you get when quirky Canadian humor, hockey, and vampires are combined?In the case of author Steve Vernon's(Devil Tree) "Sudden Death Overtime" you get a fun bloody ballet on ice. Well, okay it's no ballet more like goriest high stakes hockey game ever witnessed. Yeah, that's it!Wielding razor sharp rows of teeth, these vampires are not sissies, but I feel the author could have developed them more. I never felt fear when these vile beasts were on the loose. Sure they do what all vamps do; [...]

    Sudden Death Overtime. That is one impressive title for a Canadian hockey horror novella. The story is riff with east coast charm and humor. It surrounds a group of older men who've seen their fair share of life, and fair share of hockey. With the little time that Vernon had to shape these men he didn't waste a word. You knew these fellows. Their own uniqueness would boomerang through the story and gave me several laugh out loud moments.It was a fast read that I easily devoured in an evening. I [...]

    "I'll curdle your guts and give you a permanent case of funk-fangs."What do you get when you mix backyard hockey, old men, and vampires? That's right - "Sudden Death Overtime."An evil living black bus full of nasty vampires comes to Hopes End, Labrador and finds that the old men of the town feel their way of life is worth fighting for.I love the characterization of the old guys in the novella, keeping their homemade hockey rink ready for the kids in their little town, bantering back and forth, f [...]

    This is not my typical genre, so I thought it would be a nice break for me to pick up this book. What a wonderful surprise to have a few laughs thrown in and not just have a gross-out apocolyptic slaughter book. Vernon does a fantastic job of painting a rich character picture for this small, icy town. It was so easy to see these townspeople in my mind. This was a good, scary, creepy story, and the dialogue was so well written with some humor intermixed to make these people even more lifelike. An [...]
