A rum run awry

by Ed Gamester | 21 April 2016
Category: Fantasy
Synopsis
Mythical adventurer, Alexander McCuba, is a burly, bearded, simple-minded man of the Guild of Adventurers. Whilst on a prestigious quest to harvest the rum of the Great Extravaganza, he attempts to fight the sea - and ends up marooned on a mysterious island. A Rum Run Awry is McCuba's personal diary from the island. Entry by hilarious entry, it documents his baffling experiences with the curious inhabitants of the land, their bizarre customs and his own struggles with homesickness, madness and lack-of-rum.ness. The log book has been printed exactly as it was found, complete with all McCuba's scribbles, sketches and stains, plus a hundred pages of glorious vibrant illustrations that immerse us in his technicolour adventure. Some pages are detailed descriptions of the new world around him; others are manic scrawls across the pages - the rantings of a man losing his mind. This is the first time such a diary has been made publically available, and it is easy to see why. It takes a brave person to strike out into a new land; it takes an even braver person to try and understand the workings of a mind like Alexander McCuba. This isn't a book, it's a quest.
