Summary

Hammurabi Road is a dark redneck-noir novella 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.

That's the gist of it. Here's a little bit about myself.

I grew up in Northern Ontario in a little railroad town called Capreol, about twenty miles north of Sudbury. There wasn't all that much to do that far north. We fished, and when the fish weren't biting we'd go swimming instead. Some weekends we'd drink. Some weekends, we'd drink all week long. Mostly, we'd just sit around telling stories. This is one of them, maybe the best thing I have ever written. Let me know how you like it. I'd love to read a good review.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT STEVE VERNON

"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

"Armed with a bizarre sense of humor, a huge amount of originality, a flair for taking risks and a strong grasp of characterization - Steve's got the chops for sure." - Dark Discoveries

"Steve Vernon was born to write. He's the real deal and we're lucky to have him." - Richard Chizmar

My Mom thinks I'm pretty cool, too.
