Deus irae

Open All Close All

http://schema.org/description

  • "Deux des meilleurs auteurs américains de science-fiction ont élaboré cette histoire apocalyptique où le Bien et le Mal représentés par deux Eglises distinctes se disputent l'adhésion de l'humanité survivante. Publié en 1976 après une longue gestation. Les amateurs de ces deux écrivains y trouveront plaisir."
  • "In the years following World War III, a new and powerful faith has arisen from a scorched and poisoned Earth, a faith that embraces the architect of world wide devastation. The Servants of Wrath have deified Carlton Lufteufel and re-christened him the Deus Irae. In the small community of Charlottesville, Utah, Tibor McMasters, born without arms or legs, has, through an array of prostheses, established a far-reaching reputation as an inspired painter. When the new church commissions a grand mural depicting the Deus Irae, it falls upon Tibor to make a treacherous journey to find the man, to find the god, and capture his terrible visage for posterity."
  • "An artist searches for God so he can paint his portrait in Philip K. Dick's collaboration with Roger Zelazny. 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."
  • "Two masters of science fiction collaborate on a post-apocalyptic story. After World War III, the Servants of Wrath cult deified the mysterious Lufteufel, creator of the doomsday weapon that wiped out much of humanity, and send a limbless master painter into the wilderness to find him and capture his likeness."
