I'm on page 158 and very much enjoying 'Aloha from Hell', the 3rd installment in Richard Kadrey's 'Sandman Slim' series. Given my sensibilities, (borderline Nouveau Victorian) I really shouldn't like the Sandman Slim novels at all, but I love them. The books are told in the 1st person present tense. In the first novel, the hero, Stark has returned from the gladiatorial arenas of Hell to wreck vengeance on the former friend who sent him "Downtown" and murdered his girl through the arcane magics with which they'd all dabbled. The narrative is base, raw, brutal and profane, (in both the scatological and ecclesiastical sense); but the author, remembered something that another author (who's dreary werewolf novel I recently put aside), did not. Kadrey remembered to bring "The Funny." (The hero, snarks cleverly throughout), and the humanity, (He's brought some his troubles on himself, and knows it. But we can understand why a guy might be pissed enough to think about going autoclave on God, the angels and the entire planet) Stark's got the means and motive to crisp the universe. Instead he starts helping dive bar owners, picking fights with dead things, and generally being a reluctant, but stand-up-guy, kind of monster.

I won't go plot of the 2nd or 3rd books. I'll just suggest that if you've found my taste to be like your own on Good reads; pick up a copy of the first book, 'Sandman Slim' by Richard Kadrey. If you like that one, you'll find that number 2 in the series, Kill the dead, is more good stuff, and it's looking like number 3 is right there with them.

Have fun!

Richard Kadrey has officially become one of my favorite authors. Sandman Slim is sometimes witty, often dirty, but always a pleasure. Whether you're in the streets of LA or the dark shadows of Hell, Kadrey's writing will take you on a wild ride through the life of Sandman Slim, the monster you just can't help but love.

Another enjoyable caper-fantasy mashup. I'm actually looking forward to the (presumed) next in the series.

In my reviews, I have frequently commented on my lack of enthusiasm for series novels. I am happy to say The Everything Box is a great exception. I'm very much looking forward to reading the next (and so far only other one) in the series. Everyone who enjoyed Good Omens by Pratchett and Gaiman will almost certainly enjoy this book.
