James Stark, a.k.a. Sandman Slim, has a new job, but being the new Lucifer in town gives fresh meaning to the word "Hell." Especially when he hears of hideous massacres near a haunted fortress out on Hell's frontier.

As far as Stark's concerned, the more dead Hellions, the better, but he still has to prove that no one screws with Sandman Slim. And facing creatures so terrible even Hell does not want them is no cakewalk, even for Lucifer.

A perfect little between book teaser story. Of course I wished it was longer. Definitely should only be read if you are caught up on the series otherwise the impact is completely lost.

A great interlude between Aloha From Hell and the upcoming Devil Said Bang. Illustrating that things never seem to go quite right, and adding to the mythology of Slim's world. Fast, fun, and violent as a Slim story should be.

This series has turned me into a complete sandman junkie. A hero i can finally trust in. I hope it never ends. My great thanks to its creator. You should turn it iinto a internet series. I am sure it would have a huge following. (everyone i have recomended the books to , with the exception of one , has become a real fan.) Thank you again . Dolores Tupper

Kadrey doesn't dissapoint. I've read farther in the series but it was worth backtracking to catch this little gem, and who could complain at a Kadrey book for a buck?

A quick, fun little short in between books three and four in the series. Don't read it unless you've gotten at least that far; it will make no sense on its own.

Decent segue after Sandman gets his new position. Not bad for only 99cents.

A good interlude between stories. I could ask for more, but that sums up my feelings on Sandman Slim. I always want more.

Other than being so short, a great, fast and fun add to the series (and yes, needs to be read in sequence). Shame B&N does not list number of pages in an ebook before purchase. I noted in one of the reviews that some got this instalment for free. I think it should have stayed that way, since this was shorter than most ebook free samples. Of the 41 pages purchased, only 24 are the story itself. Just my opinion.

Short story setting up some background info, plus you get a sample read. Strange story of Hell.
