I just received a signed copy of Beyond Redemption by the very awesome Michael R. Fletcher. Even before I read his book I became a fan of Michael. I have gotten to know him a little online and he his a great guy. Then I read his book and now in my opinion I am his biggest fan! I know, I know, your thinking there might be another biggest fan, but I don’t care! In my mind I am the greatest fan. That is all that matters!
I want everyone to know how great this author and book is! I want to shout it from the tallest mountain top! On second thought that probably wouldn’t work so well. I guess I will just keep blogging about it. For now check out my book review, or Michael’s guest blog post, or our interview. (links below) See I told you biggest fan!
So Thank You Michael for the signed, doodled, inscribed, masterpiece I now have, that is testament to my place as your biggest fan! I am also starting to test read something super secret for Michael, I can’t say anything about it. Oops!
Seriously though, Thank You!
James – mightythorjrs – AKA Michael R. Fletcher’s Biggest/Greatest fan!

A darkly imaginative writer in the tradition of Joe Abercrombie, Peter V. Brett, and Neil Gaiman conjures a gritty mind-bending fantasy, set in a world where delusion becomes reality . . . and the fulfillment of humanity’s desires may well prove to be its undoing.
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?
