9780061714337: Aloha from Hell (Sandman Slim Novels)

All hail Sandman Slim, author Richard Kadrey’s ultra-extreme anti-hero and recent escapee from Hell.

Legendary author William Gibson (Neuromancer) called Kadrey’s first deliciously twisted Slim adventure ‘an addictively satisfying, deeply amusing, dirty-ass masterpiece’, and in number three, Aloha from Hell, the ruthless avenger, a.k.a. Stark, finds himself trapped in the middle of a war between Heaven and Hell.

With God on vacation, the Devil nosing around in Paradise, and an insane serial killer doing serious damage on Earth, Stark/Slim is ready to unleash some more adrenaline-surging, edgy and violent supernatural mayhem — and even pay another visit to Hell if necessary — which is great news for fans of Jim Butcher, Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, and Simon R. Green.

Review:

Praise for Sandman Slim:

“The best B movie I’ve read in at least twenty years. An addictively satisfying, deeply amusing, dirty-ass masterpiece, Sandman Slim swerves hell-bent through our culture’s impacted gridlock of genres…it’s like watching Sergio Leone and Clive Barker co-direct from a script by Jim Thompson and S. Clay Wilson.” William Gibson

“If Simon R. Green wrote an episode of Dog the Bounty Hunter, it would read much like Sandman Slim – violent, vivid, non-stop action of the supernatural kind. I couldn’t put it down.” Charlaine Harris

“The most hard-boiled piece of supernatural fiction I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. … all confident and energetic and fresh and angry. I loved this book and all its screwed-up people.” Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother

“Paced like greased lightning (watch out for friction burns on your turning finger), blend the movie-ish delights of tough guy noir and such smart-mouthgore-fests as “Reanimator” and “Army of Darkness”, seasoned by soupcons of Gaimanian romanticism and Koontzian sentiment.” Booklist

“Nicotine and octane in equal parts might come close to the high-energy buzz from Richard Kadrey’s Sandman Slim. Crisp world building, recognizable and fully-realized characters, and a refreshingly unique storytelling style make for an absorbing read. Sandman Slim is my kind of hero.” Kim Harrison

From the Back Cover:

All is not as it should be in the City of Angels. God is missing, Lucifer is back in Heaven, and a psychopath has declared war against both Heaven and Hell.

It soon becomes clear that Stark must leave L.A. and head back downtown to his old stomping grounds in Hell if he’s to rescue his long lost love, thwart a deranged serial killer, prevent both Good and Evil from completely destroying each other, and stop the demonic Kissi from ruining the party for everyone.

Even for Sandman Slim, that’s a tall order. And it’s only the beginning.
