The winter room is where Eldon, his brother Wayne, old Uncle David, and the rest of the family gather on icy cold nights, sitting in front of the stove. There the boys listen eagerly to all of Uncle David's tales of superheroes.
Then one night Uncle David tells the story, "The Woodcutter", and what happens next is terrible — then wonderful.
