A man wakes up in Heaven but God is not there, so he joins a group of misfits building a rocket to go look for Him.

Otto Boteman suffers a massive heart attack and wakes up in a strange, jeweled city filled with beautiful people, a mesmerizing sky defying all physics, and what looks suspiciously like his first car. He has a disturbing encounter with a murdered childhood friend and is assured by an angel bureaucrat that this is Heaven but God is not here so don’t bother looking. No God? Can’t be Heaven, then, despite the best danishes Otto’s ever eaten and a nice condo replete with tailored suits and HBO. Maybe he’s not even dead, just comatose. But then he meets Claudia, a 5th Century beauty running an Irish pub, who tells him about a group of malcontents building a rocket ship in the far desert. Their mission? Find God.

So begins Otto’s journey across a fabulous world peopled with the likes of Doc Holliday, Prester John, and a Mongol horde led by an accountant from West Kankakee, Illinois. Drawing the wrath of a frenzied, suit-wearing army of angels (or demons, can’t tell), Otto discovers that launching the ship just might end the eternal struggle between good and evil.
