The Archaeologists (ARP Books) is the new novel by writer Hal Niedzviecki. It follows six people from the fictional edge city Wississauga, Ontario whose lives intersect when they become embroiled in a fight over the fate of a riverbed running behind their homes. In an exciting and unprecedented move, all 34 chapters of this tense, mysterious, off kilter and episodic novel will be serialized from April to October 2016. There will be one, or occasionally two, chapters released each week, available for free on the alternating websites of five excellent magazines.

Niedzviecki’s vividly portrayed characters, caught in the conflict between the natural and the urban, resonate with the rage that unbridled modernity raises in all of us, whether we know it or not. The Archeologists is a novel Jane Jacobs would have loved. — Wayne Grady, author of Emancipation Day
