How long will it take?


Harper Collins

When belief defines reality, those with the strongest convictions-the crazy, the obsessive, the delusional-have the power to shape the world.  And someone is just mad enough to believe he can create a god...

Violent and dark, the world is filled with the Geistrekranken - men and women whose delusions manifest. Sustained by their own belief-and the beliefs of those around them-they can manipulate their surroundings. For the High Priest Konig, that means creating order out of the chaos in his city-state, leading his believers to focus on one thing: helping a young man, Morgen, ascend to become a god. A god they can control. 

Trouble is, there are many who would see a god in their thrall, including the High Priest's own doppelgangers, a Slaver no one can resist, and three slaves led by possibly the only sane man left.  As these forces converge on the boy, there's one more obstacle: time is running out.  Because as the delusions become more powerful, the also become harder to control.

The fate of the Geistrekranken is to inevitably find oneself in the Afterdeath. The question, then, is:  Who will rule there?

Reviews for Beyond Redemption

Fletcher populated the landscape with an array of mental disorders, turning a well-thumbed psychiatric manual into a dramatis personae...The dystopia and its victims never quite collapse under the weight of the horror, and their perseverance encourages the readers to endure the grimness until the thought-provoking conclusion. --Publishers Weekly (starred review) on BEYOND REDEMPTION
