Lickspit is a failure as a dwarf and as a demon. Now, the Boss has sent him to Anchorage, Alaska to sell air-conditioners to seniors as a punishment for pranking Hell with a mirth-spreading disease called the Galloping Mischief. His nemesis? Rose Swartz: an incorrigible octogenarian imp with a penchant for astrology and cookie making, who leads Lickspit into a world of surrealism and mischief that turns dwarves into warriors and old ladies into avenging angels.
