Milton Pitt leads an uneventful life, with a dull job and a secret longing for adventure. One morning, after he is hit by a speeding car, he suffers an out-of-body experience and awakens back in his bedroom. Everything is just the same - that is, except for the bloody footprints leading to the chimney...
Is this his chance to lead a better life? Was it just a dream? Or is he simply dead?
In this richly inventive and humorous novella, Edward Vass brings the themes of Dante's Divine Comedy 700 years into the future.
