Hammurabi Road is a dark redneck noir tale of retribution, backwoods justice, and getting closer to a black bear than was ever dreamed possible. We start off with the eternal triangle – four men ride out in a pick-up truck; three in front and one duct-taped and bound in the back. It’s a clear cut case of Northern Ontario railroad vengeance, served up as cold as a frozen hunting knife.
Another tale from the author of the acclaimed hockey/vampire novella SUDDEN DEATH OVERTIME – also available on Kindle.
“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 was born to write. He’s the real deal and we are lucky to have him.” – Richard Chizmar, CEMETERY DANCE
“This genre needs new blood and Steve Vernon is quite a transfusion.” – Edward Lee, author of THE GOON and HEADER

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Get busy. Get writing. Don’t waste a single minute.
I am a storyteller. I am a writer. Words are what I work with – whether spoken or written. Over the last few years I have released three maritime ghost story collections – HAUNTED HARBOURS: GHOST STORIES FROM OLD NOVA SCOTIA, WICKED WOODS: GHOST STORIES FROM OLD NEW BRUNSWICK and HALIFAX HAUNTS: EXPLORING THE CITY’S SPOOKIEST SPACES. A fourth collection – a follow up to HAUNTED HARBOURS – is due out in the fall of 2011. I have also released a children’s picture book MARITIME MONSTERS. And my very first Young Adult novel, SINKING DEEPER OR MY QUESTIONABLE (POSSIBLY HEROIC) DECISION TO INVENT A SEA MONSTER made the short list for BOTH the Hackmatack and the Silver Birch children’s fiction awards. Besides all that I’ve written over two dozen novels, novellas and novelettes of horror and dark fantasy – all available in e-book format – and, thanks to the good folks at Createspace I am releasing ALL of these in paperback format. I have a cat named Kismet who ignores me. I have a beautiful wife named Belinda. I have a backyard full of blue jays, crows, the occasional chipmunk, and dandelions galore. My Mom thinks I’m pretty cool too – or at least she tells me that.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I grew up in a small railroad town and I wanted to write a story about the people of that town that I grew up with.
