Short Synopsis
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.

Full Synopsis
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.

"Narrator Matthew Lloyd Davies shines in this funny, vivid story in which a hermit, Simon, and his favorite rug must decide the fate of the world when an unusual pair of beings visit his home." ---AudioFile

"I laughed, I cried, I bought a fireside rug!" ---Ian Pattison, creator of Rab C Nesbitt

"Addictive and extremely witty." ---SciFiNow
