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.
