The follow-up to his 2009 graphic novel "Far Arden," this installment promises "an intoxicating tale of swashbuckling adventure, abandoned moon bases, bloodthirsty walruses, rogue astronauts, two-faced femme fatales, sailboat chases, Siberian pirates, international Arctic politics and a gaggle of horny orphans."

The book is named after its main character, faded hometown hero Hector "Heck" Hammarskjöld. He inherits his estranged father's house, where he uncovers a portal to the underworld. Cannon describes it as "a story of memory, friendship and regret, where the past is dead and buried … but not out of reach."
