A man awakens in a filthy bedroom with no recollection of who he is or how he got there. Seeing an old Gideon bible on a nightstand, he finds a name to call his own = Temple. This is the story of Temple's quest for identity and purpose in a dying, decaying world.
By turns heartbreaking, enlightening, and surreal, British fantasist Steven Savile has created a story that T.M. Wright describes as "a story about Death written by a man who has clearly consorted with devils."
This novella comprises the four part Temple series published in Apex Digest issues five through eight, with a special introduction from T.M. Wright and an afterword from the author.
*Only 100 hardcovers was produced, each numbered, and signed by Steven Savile, T.M. Wright, and cover/interior artist Judi Davidson. An unsigned, unlimited trade paperback version is also available.
