Who is Sandman Slim?

May 12, 2013

‘Sandman Slim’ is Richard Kadrey’s first novel, and kicks off a series of four about James Stark who has spent the last eleven years in hell, after being sent there by one of his Sub Rosa coven members, Mason.

Sandman series

Although the premise sounds far-fetched, Kadrey is an adept enough writer to keep you turning the pages to find out what happens…and why. Along the way, Stark (aka Sandman Slim – a moniker given to him by the hellions he defeated in Dante’s Inferno) introduces you to magick, and the Sub Rosa: the group of magicians who perform it in Los Angeles. Stark found a doorway out of hell back to earth and has returned for revenge…but things have changed greatly in his absence.

Highly recommended as a sort of male Janet Evanovich with hellish overtones and a supernatural flavour.
