Overview

Devil Said Bang (Sandman Slim Series #4) by Richard Kadrey

Richard Kadrey’s Sandman Slim—aka James Stark—is, quite simply, one of the most outrageous uber-anti-heroes ever to kick serious butt on this or any other world or dimension.

In his previous three adventures—Sandman Slim, Kill the Dead, and Aloha from Hell—Stark has fled Hell for California, taken on angels, demons, outlaw bikers, zombies, covert government operatives, and all manner of monsters, while saving humankind from total annihilation on numerous occasions. But in Devil Said Bang, he finally assumes the role he was destined for: as the new Lucifer, ruler of the Underworld.

Combining outrageously edgy humor with a dark and truly twisted vision, Richard Kadrey has once again delivered a masterful amalgam of action novel, urban fantasy, and in-your-face horror that will delight a wide range of readers—from Christopher Moore and Warren Ellis fans to the devoted adherents of Jim Butcher, Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, and Simon Green.

I really enjoy these books, but the publisher seems to have made an ugly mistake. There is a section of the book missing which makes the story nearly unreadable.

Missing pages and repeating the last few bits of the book, that is just sloppy, until this gets fixed I don't believe it would be smart to purchase eanything else by this publisher.

When i got to the middle of the book i felt like i had missed something. So i went to the book store and found the hard copy and discovered that 137 pages were missing, pages 148 to 285. I was dissappointed to say the least. Im not sure if this is a nook issue or the ebook publisher, but im going back to BandN tomorrow and hope they can remedy this. I love the Sandman Slim series and this ebook snafu is making me rethink if buying an ereader was such a good idea.

Even after the archive unarchive trick this book is still broken. I have really enjoyed it up until this point but what the hell? How does a publisher screw this up?

Missing about 70 pages in the middle. I didnt understand until almost finished with book though. Talk about ruining it... I waited 2 weeks for this to come out.

This book is fun, gritty, darkly witty, and sac religious. A must read for the misanthrope.

Continues the saga of James Stark started in "Sandman Slim". This novel is effectively two novellas - the first part takes place in Hell, where Sandman Slim is the new Satan, and has to not only figure out how Hell functions but then make the system serve his needs. The second part transpires when he returns to LA, where he confronts more supernatural challenges, with familiar companions from the earlier books. You'll want to read the series in order, to be able to follow the various plots and subplots, but the creativity and non-stop action that were present in the prior books continue in this one. Aside from the original and creative ideas, and flawed but engaging characters, if I could have a superpower, it would be to craft metaphors like Richard Kadrey does in this outstanding (and continuing) series.

I have read all of this series and foynd myself missing sandman slim. Besides the bad publication, the story for the first time tells you that this incomplete. You can tell that they are now milking this storyline.

I love Sandman Slim and I absolutely cannot get enough of him, his friends, aquantences, enemies, and mischief. Oh only if there were an unlimited number of books. I swear I read a book every coiple of days. It is rare I am lucky enough to find such fabulously fun works of fiction. Enough of this review, I am off to read the next in the series. See you all in a few days!

Entertaining, addictive, & fun! Not great like the first three books in the series but still very good! Was hard to put down! Felt like two great books rushed & put together to make one book that still turned out good!
