Why would someone want to write a novel or novella about man's struggle with the mythical Scarecrow beast?

The Scarecrow is a fictional avatar that symbolizes a general omen of fear and rapture in the face of harvest or wilderness vanities.

He who does lethal battle with the Scarecrow must confess that the outcome will be monumental, and if he/she wins against the Scarecrow, the prize or spiritual reward can only be austere or solemn divinity.

Hence, a novel about such a topic is surely as emotionally intriguing as Victor Hugo's spiritually moving "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (1831), which itself has been adapted into several cathartic Hollywood (USA) films.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
