First in a new trilogy—from the New York Times bestselling author known for his “infectiously enthusiastic storytelling” (Publishers Weekly).

Much to his surprise, when Lenny Hodge answers a help wanted ad for a temp agency called Terrifitemps!, he’s hired on the spot. He finds out pretty quickly, however, (the day he reports to work) that Terrifitemps! is more than simply…unusual. It might well control the universe—and it’s under attack from The Forces of Evil. Lenny’s first assignment is to save the world, with the help of a team that includes a morose ghost hunter, a vampire with mother issues, a psychic who’s right almost fifty percent of the time, and an overly friendly pooka named Bob the Horse.

It’s about as far away from part-time filing as Lenny can imagine—but it just may be the job he was born to do.

Praise for Craig Shaw Gardner and his work:

“The field needs more humorists of this caliber.”—Robert Asprin

“Gardener skewers all the clichés of quest-fantasy with wit, style, mordant irony and great glee—this series could have been serialized in National Lampoon or filmed by one of the Pythons!”—Spider Robinson

“A lot of fun.”—Christopher Stasheff
