uncorrected Proof Copy: Thomas M Disch (described in the publisher's blurb as "America's most intellectual writer") pens this "satiric [pseudo-memoir". Due from Tachyon in July/August.
"In early 2005 (A.D.), wearying of the world's religious schisms, doctrinal heresies, and manifold editorial sins, Thomas M. Disch took matters into His Own hands and became the Deity. As controversial as it is incontrovertible, the moving true story of His awful transformation and its awesome aftermath reveals, at long last, the hidden web that links Disch, Philip K. Dick, Western wear, the Leamington Hotel, and Eternity itself. Read it in fear and trembling. But read it, or else.
YOU WILL LAUGH. YOU WILL CRY. YOU WILL PRAY. "
