Sandman Slim

Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey
Sandman Slim #1

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.

  1. This was a great book, with the unlikeliest hero. Stark is clearly a bad guy, but in the end, he comes out as the hero that stops the true villain in the story. Some didn't like the book, you can't expect everyone to like all the books you like. But this book left a good feeling after I read it.
