Talking to Wendigo finalist for Arthur Ellice Award

"We're very proud to see Talking to Wendigo nominated for this award," said Turnstone Press associate publisher, Jamis Paulson. "John is a very talented writer and it's wonderful to have his work recognized in this manner."

Talking to Wendigo is a murder mystery that takes place in the woods north of Lake Superior. William Longstaffe, a retired English professor who now lives in a cabin in the wilderness, becomes an unwilling sleuth, along with Jack Crowfoot, a local handyman. Jack introduces William, a recent widower, to the spirit world, after which he gradually comes to terms with his wife's death.

As they pursue clues to the murder, Jack and William meet an intriguing cast of possible murder suspects including a local eccentric, a Hollywood actor, and a wilderness tour owner. The situation soon gets out of control and Jack and William find themselves alone in the woods with the killer - and the sinister presence of a forest spirit called Wendigo.

John C. Goodman has lived in British Columbia and Ontario, and now resides and writes in St. John's, Newfoundland.
