"Anderson's writing is a joy to behold. If you enjoyed 'Good Omens' then you'll LOVE this book!" - British Fantasy Society 

"Addictive and extremely witty. Must read now! 5 STARS." - SciFiNow

"The unusual premise develops into an engaging journey through evocative world building, endearing and intriguing characters, and a heavy dose of humor. Ideal for fans of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett." - Audiofile

Fifteen years after losing most of his family to a devastating, pudding-related tragedy, Simon Debovar has settled into a life of self-imposed exile from the stinking, selfish morass of humanity. Content that his daily highlights will include hazelnut coffee, a long bath and the occasional jar of olives, his life is completely upturned by the discovery that his ornate living room carpet is the deciding factor in a bet between God and Satan.

When mysteriously well-timed carpet thieves deprive him of the crucial heirloom, Simon is forced to leave his hermit's existence behind for a world of angels, demons, witches and immortals.

And then it gets complicated.
