James Stark (that is, Sandman Slim) finds himself in Los Angeles, having turned his back on hell. But the older gods are after a weapon he managed to misplace, and for help he must find a dead man somewhere in an alternate L.A. Sandman's in good shape, though; film rights have been optioned, the last title in the series was a New York Times best seller, and previous titles have received best book and Indie Next nods. With a 75,000-copy first printing.
One of the great horror setups of all time.… If there’s one thing Kill City Blues demonstrates, it’s that Kadrey’s still got a ton of material for Sandman Slim. I can’t wait to read it all.
Hot damn, a new Sandman Slim novel! I will fight you for it if I have to.Yes, the series is just that good (P.S., I will fight VERY VERY DIRTY).
The series is part fantasy, part gothic horror, part crime noir. It’s filled with knowing winks about pop culture and told at a breathless pace that can’t be bothered with actual chapters.
A deft mixture of urban fantasy and light comedy, the fifth Sandman Slim novel is sure to appeal to the author’s growing fan base, not to mention readers of such writers as Jim Butcher, P. N. Elrod, and F. Paul Wilson.
We can savor every insight from a grand master of the blunt exposition.
