My story "A Fine Sacrifice" was fortunate enough to win BAD MOON BOOK's 1999 Blood & Guts Horror Story Competition. The chapbook is still commercially available from the publisher.

Check it out on www.badmoonbooks.ca

This review was published in Janet Fox's SCAVENGER'S NEWSLETTER #191, in Jim Lee's review column "The Skeptic Tank". Enjoy.

Ottawa publisher Bad Moon Books has an annual contest for horror stories and publishes the winner. In this case, a chillingly understated story of a baseball-obsessed man's type of creep, his misogynistic outlook and the soul-warping effects he's had on the unfortunate people in his orbit. That probably sounds more like a mainstream story, but rest assured there's an unease in this little gem that builds to genuine horror, rendered all the more imprssive by its psychological insights.
Author Steve Vernon is a familiar name in small press (and not-so-small press) horror circles and this is a fine effort on his part.
