A dystopian satire in the spirit of J.G. Ballard, Kafka, Celine, and Michel Houellebecq, The Mighty Quinn tells the tale of a young man bored with doing drudge work for an environmental organization. In search of a grand transcendent moment, he joins a group of environmental activists who are sailing to the Antarctic in order to disrupt the activities of Japanese whaling vessels. The expedition is led by Horatio Quinn, a charismatic eco-terrorist who preaches the use of violence to defend the Earth from the depredations of humanity. As the voyage continues, however, Quinn falls deeper and deeper into psychosis, ultimately leading to a final confrontation whose implications are far darker and more disturbing than anyone could imagine.
