HARD ROADS by Steve Vernon.

Introduction by Norman Partridge.

Gray Matter Novella Series No. 2.

It’s a rare thrill these days when the genre unleashes an utterly exclusive voice. Steve Vernon is indeed such a voice, a writer who knows how to manipulate the building blocks of the horror genre with the confidence of a veteran, while unveiling a style, a craft, and a creative perception that is excitingly original.The genre needs new blood and Steve Vernon is quite a transfusion.–Edward Lee, author of FLESH GOTHIC and CITY INFERNAL.

Theres something about a hard road that calls a body to wander. You want to know whats waiting down there just past the far edge of the horizon. What darkness hides beyond that fish hook of a blind curve scything out to the left. It calls you and all you can do is wander on down.

HARD ROADS offers two brand new novellas from Nova Scotias hardest working horror writer, Steve Vernon.

In the first tale, Trolling Lures, you will take a drive down a lonesome Nova Scotia hardtop road and youll find yourself running into a troll, a suicide, and a hint of divine intervention. Coyote is howling soft and low and the moon is watching the pines trees gossip with the cool Atlantic wind.

Come closer to the campfire, the old man is talking.

The second story, Hammurabi Road, is a dark tale of retribution, backwoods justice, and getting closer to a black bear than was ever dreamed possible. We start off with the eternal triangle — three men ride out in a pick-up truck; two in front and one duct-taped in the back. Its a clear cut case of Northern Ontario railroad vengeance, served up as cold as a frozen hunting knife.

We eat what we kill out here and we apologize to no one who doesnt deserve it.

Come on. What are you waiting for? It aint getting any easier staring at it.
