“Sandman Slim is my kind of hero.”
—Kim Harrison

“Richard Kadrey is a genius.”
—Holly Black

Sandman Slim is back from Hell. After wreaking unholy havoc in author Richard Kadrey’s resoundingly acclaimed Sandman Slim, the demon-slaying anti-hero and half-angel fugitive from the underworld returns in a brutally funny, eye-poppingly inventive, and totally addicting follow-up, Kill the Dead. If you’re a fan of Buffy and Jim Butcher, Christopher Moore, Neil Gaiman, and Warren Ellis, or you dig the dark urban fantasy vibe of Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, and Simon Green, you’ll cheer Lucifer’s onetime personal assassin as he signs on as his ex-boss’ Hollywood bodyguard…and takes on the zombie apocalypse almost single-handedly.

    A human returning from the gladitory arena in Hell for vengence on Earth? This Sandman Slim series is a gritty version of Butcher's and Huston's works with a little bit of McFarlane thrown in. A great spin of the (somewhat worn) 'Good vs Evil' plots. Lucifer tired of being 'Lucifer'? Corrupt angels working with Homeland Security? - great concepts. He gives all the Host/Immortals/Divinity human fallacies and weaves a great story around it. Action-packed with a unique cast of characters around Sandman makes it tough to put down. Every character has their own personal agenda and it's up to Stark to sift thru them to his own end. Going back to Hell's arena? We'll see.
  • Awesome read!

    Even better than the first novel, Sandman Slim. Can't wait for the third book!
