Pulp ArK 2012 - Best Novel Nominees - Arron of the Black Forest: The Haunting of Dragon’s Cliff - by Phil Athans and Mel Odom
Arron is the last of his kind. The sole survivor of the Twelve Tribes of the Black Forest. And he's on the run. Pursued through a raging hurricane by a ruthless bounty hunter known as the Hound, Arron is driven into the dark embrace of a crumbling old house on the edge of the world. The mansion once known as Dragon's Cliff hasn't seen a living soul in decades. And what waits within has grown impatient. Ruled by greed and hate, the spirits that call Dragon's Cliff home want Arron as much as the bounty hunter does. But all the Hound wants is Arron's head. The ghosts have more gruesome plans. The New York Times best-selling fantasy author Philip Athans and veteran storyteller Mel Odom join forces to create a new sword and sorcery adventure series in the tradition of Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and H.P. Lovecraft. But Arron isn't your grandfather's barbarian. This is a whole new world of adventure. This is the world of Arron of the Black Forest!
