Description: Heretics is a 38,000 word novella. It remains a very hard to find edition, originally only produced as a 50-copy hardcover and 250-copy trade paperback run. Now the novella has been reprinted as a digital edition so that a wider audience can experience what many insiders state is classic Gifune!
From the original introduction (which has not been reprinted with this edition), Brian Hopkins stated: “Heretics is a coming home story. It’s all about redemption and resolution, about facing the demons that took you from the people and places you once loved. It’s also about alienation, but whereas most writers would have overdone that element of the story, Greg is smart and talented enough to let it work on its own. We see — and more importantly we understand — how Harry, Rip, and Madeline are made the outcasts of Virtue. Ten thousand words telling us this would have failed, but a handful of careful observations and character reflections bring it home with stark clarity. Greg knows his characters and, in turn, so do we.”
