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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

I laughed, I cried, I bought a fireside rug! Ian Pattison, creator of Rab C Nesbitt
“Gloriously quirky and hilariously inventive, Anderson’s storytelling challenges that of the great Robert Rankin for sheer tongue in cheek originality.” Edinburgh Evening News (Scotland)
“There are so many delightful surprises showcased within these addictive and extremely witty pages. Anderson has a flare for rather classic characterization, from Simon’s introvert insecurity to the potty-mouthed loudness of his alcohol-swilling Great Aunt Harriet, a double act that should go down in literary history…[A] must-read.” SciFiNow (5 stars)
