Publisher's Summary

Two masters of science fiction collaborate on one wild post-apocalyptic story.

After World War III, the Servants of Wrath cult deified the mysterious Carlton Lufteufel, creator of the doomsday weapon that wiped out much of humanity. But to worship the man, they need an image of him as a god, and no one has ever seen him. So the high priests send a limbless master painter named Tibor McMasters into the wilderness on a mission to find Lufteufel and capture his likeness. Unfortunately for Tibor, the nation’s remaining Christians do not want him to succeed and are willing to kill to ensure that the so-called Deus Irae remains hidden. This hallucinatory tale through a nuclear wasteland asks what price the artist must pay for art and tries to figure out just what makes a god.

    It's fun reading books while you play video games.

    "Satirical apocalypse or apocalyptic satire?"

    Deus Irae is exactly what I would expect from a collaboration between Philip K. Dick and Roger Zelazny, both inimitable writing styles on clear display. I assumed one voice would out-shout the other, but it's a seamless merge.

    Most impressive is Luke Daniels' performance. I was on chapter three before I realized it was a single narrator. His character renderings are so distinct I assumed the book was being performed by a cast, as with the Dune series.
