“I can smell the cold; it filters up my nostrils, tinkling the hairs inside with mint flower chill. The frost plates itself to the air, every grabful of it decorated like chainmail; scratchings on every outline, intricately flaked etch-sketchings tracing over the size and shape of things – but pushing hard enough to break through, making all these jagged punctures and scraps, these holes in the wind. The smell is bare and fierce, of wulv-teeth and shiverfoot fur, of glistening ice rock and the scents of these snow whites and emulsion blues. The smell of the North!”
A nameless author sits alone in an old wooden shack. Ink hits paper. What follows is a tale of the deepest fantasy, a tale of imagination, of incredible creatures and fantastical lands, of dark struggles and wild adventure. The heart of the tale, however, is an internal war, a bitter battle against 'growing up', and filled with chaos, confusion, and existentialism. As the adventure continues, things become darker, bleaker and fatalistic, the possibility of clinging on to one’s imagination and fictions seeming increasingly impossible. The fight to keep on going no matter what becomes fierce and desperate, and in a story where fiction and fact, reality and fantasy, dream and wakefulness blur together, everything hinges on finding success.
This is a story about what lies between the child and the adult. It is about escapism, and what happens when it begins to fail.
The debut novel of Peter Setters, An Adventure of Unparalleled Importance is a dark original imagination-fantasy for adult humans and similar creatures.
