“An addictively satisfying, deeply amusing, dirty-ass masterpiece.”
—William Gibson

“A sharp-edged urban fantasy, drenched in blood and cynicism, tipping its hat to Sam Peckinpah, Raymond Chandler, and the anti-heroes of Hong Kong cinema….A bravura performance.”
—San Francisco Chronicle

“I couldn’t put it down.”
—Charlaine Harris

Sandman Slim has arrived—a wild and weird, edge-of-your-seat supernatural roller-coaster rider that propels author Richard Kadrey to the forefront of the fantasy, thriller, and a host of other literary genres. This spellbinding, utterly remarkable tale of a vengeful magician/hitman’s return from hell is part H.P. Lovecraft, part Christopher Moore, part Jim Butcher, and totally, unabashedly dark, twisted, and hilarious.

    Sandman Slim is what would happen if Christopher Moore, Neil Gaiman, and Tim Dorsey's novels all got together and had a baby. Well-developed characters, fast-paced action, and a beautifully designed fantasy world of angels, demons, and all the pixies in between. Enjoyed every minute and have already purchased the next in the series.

    This was a great book. Held my attention from start to finish. On the iPod, the book sometimes lost its place and I had to find where I left off.
  • Great!

    Funny, morbid, and just plain disturbing. Sandman Slim is a great book. It has a interesting story that is easy to follow. The writing is fluid and quick paced. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fiction. Your bound to get a load of morbid chuckles form this book.

    It was funny; I liked the characters though it could've been better w less rambling from stark and an explanation of why he's called sandman slim??
  • This was a good time.

    This was a 99 cent book with pretty good reviews, so I bought it on a whim. What I got was a really good time and a few morbid chuckles, to boot. Stark/Slim is a great antihero and he doesn't seem to have any illusions about himself. I'm hooked. I'll read more of this when I have time. Thanks for a fun read, Mister Kadrey.

  • Good Read

    Humor mixed with not so bad demons, questionable angels and a mix of bad good guys and good bad ones. God the devil and the mistakes they both make. Add in a likable killer and it is hard not to enjoy. I can't wait for the next one.
