'Rock, Scissors, Paper: The Clifford Olson Murders' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Dec 6, 2016

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 Stevenson recognized one of the victims from her photograph. This collection pays tribute to these victims and delves into the workings of a murderer in True Crime fashion. Warning: Graphic language/violence. Due to the nature of the contents, all readers/reviewers must be 18 years or older and prepared for the difficult subject matter and language. 'Rock, Scissors, Paper' is available now from Amazon with a price of just $2.99 (e-book) or $10.00 (paperback). Please contact Kristi at to request review copies or to receive exclusive author interviews, notice of new releases, and cover reveals. Dreaming Big Publications is a publishing company on a mission to reach more people on a global level by publishing books that educate and advocate for mental health and social Justice issues. Our main focus is nonfiction-self-help, memoirs, and books written for professional mental health providers-but we publish fiction as well and enjoy anything that is a good, fun read, including fantasy and sci-fi. Richard Stevenson was born in Victoria, B.C., in 1952 and has lived in western Canada and Nigeria. A college English teacher by profession, he taught English, Canadian and African literature, Business Communication, Creative and Technical Writing, E.S.L., and humanities courses in high schools and colleges. A former Editor-in-Chief of Prism international, he served in various editorial, jury, and writing/arts group executive capacities. His own reviews and poems have appeared in hundreds of magazines, anthologies, e-zines, and journals published in Canada, the United States, and overseas. He performed with the jazz/ poetry group Naked Ear and rock music/YA verse troupe Sasquatch, and occasionally puts other ensembles together for book launches and performances and reviews books.
