These days everyone is buzzing about Sandman Slim, Richard Kadrey's raucous supernatural thriller. Here's an excerpt from io9's awesome review: "Sandman Slim follows the adventures of Jimmy, aka Stark, aka Sandman Slim, who was dragged down to Hell as a cocky teenager and somehow survived for eleven years, before busting out. The only person he cared about is dead, and he's out for revenge — and he doesn't really care what he has to break to get it. Along the way, he gets dragged deeper and deeper into the politics of the L.A. magic scene, the ongoing feud between Hell's generals, the schemes of angels, Homeland Security, and the decadent plans of L.A.'s filthy rich magic users.
As someone who's read every novel by Mickey Spillane, Raymond Chandler, Richard Stark/Donald Westlake and Ross McDonald at least once, I found the frothiness and nihilism of the novel instantly appealing."
Still not sold? You might want to read the following quote from Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse series: “If Simon R. Green wrote an episode of Dog the Bounty Hunter, it would read much like Sandman Slim– violent, vivid, non-stop action of the supernatural kind. I couldn’t put it down.”
