Aloha from Hell

Front Cover
HarperCollins Publishers Limited, 2012 - Los Angeles (Calif.) - 438 pages
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.
