SIGNED BY WRITER DAMON NOLLER.
A young lumberjack, helping to solve a gruesome murder mystery, must survive both the real perils and legendary horrors of logging lore.
Told in Gothic Horror style, this story takes the creatures of tall tales told in lumberjack shacks and turns them into horrifying monsters protecting their mysterious home in one of the last remaining old growth forests of the Great Lakes: the Elk-like Hugag becomes a creature made of ancient pine. The combustible Gumberoo becomes a massive, primordial bear whose tar-like skin, while impenetrable, will explode upon contact with a mere spark. And our chief antagonists, the tree-creeping Argopelters, from which the title comes, hurl wood splinters and ‘widow makers” from high. Coupled with the dangers of river logjams, falling timber and forest fire, our lumberjacks will face a dangerous, horrifying adventure.
