Guest Post: Rock, Scissors, Paper: The Clifford Olson Murders by Richard Stevenson

imagePublished: Nov 2016 by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform | Pages: 212 |

Synopsis: In the early 1980’s, serial killer Clifford Olson rampaged through the lower mainland of British Columbia, raping and murdering eleven victims. His heinous cash-for-bodies deal foreshortened his trial, and resulted in the law currently on Canadian books that forbids criminals from benefiting financially from their crimes.

Olson was just the pimple on the hide of a misogynist culture, as this long poem sequence attests.

Sometimes a book project chooses its author, as this one did when the author recognized one of the victims from her photograph.

Inspiration behind the poetry: A collection of poems following the murder victims and case of the serial killer Clifford Olson.
