Supernatural fantasy has a new antihero

Life sucks, and then you die. Or, if you're James Stark, you spend eleven years in Hell as a hitman before finally escaping, only to land back in the hell-on-earth that is Los Angeles.

Now Stark's back, and ready for revenge. And absolution, and maybe even love. But when his first stop saddles him with an abusive talking head, Stark discovers that the road to absolution and revenge is much longer than you'd expect, and both Heaven and Hell have their own ideas for his future.

Resurrection sucks. Saving the world is worse.

Darkly twisted, irreverent, and completely hilarious, Sandman Slim is the breakthrough novel by an acclaimed author.

Review
"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." (Charlaine Harris )

"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." (Charlaine Harris )

"The most hard-boiled piece of supernatural fiction I've ever had the pleasure of reading. . all confident and energetic and fresh and angry. I loved this book and all its screwed-up people." (Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother )

"Buffy and Angel fans are likely to enjoy Kadrey's offbeat supernatural romp, which blends demonic evil and quirky humor. . . . Kadrey juxtaposes gore and brash insouciance in the face of apocalyptic evil." (Publishers Weekly on Butcher Bird )

"Nicotine and octane in equal parts might come close to the high-energy buzz from Richard Kadrey's SANDMAN SLIM. Crisp world building, recognizable and fully-realized characters, and a refreshingly unique storytelling style make for an absorbing read. Sandman Slim is my kind of hero." (Kim Harrison )

"The best B movie I've read in at least twenty years. An addictively satisfying, deeply amusing, dirty-ass masterpiece, SANDMAN SLIM swerves hell-bent through our culture's impacted gridlock of genres.it's like watching Sergio Leone and Clive Barker co-direct from a script by Jim Thompson and S. Clay Wilson." (William Gibson )

"If this novel had been rendered in oil or acrylic, it would be kicking world-class lowbrow ass in the pages of Juxtapose or on the walls of the La Luz de Jesus. Go for it. The man is mad, in the best way." (William Gibson on Butcher Bird )
