Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey

Supernatural fantasy has a new antihero, the eponymous Sandman Slim, the star of a new series by Richard Kadrey (out next month on Harper Voyager £9.99).

“Life sucks and then you die. Or, if you’re James Stark, you spend eleven years in Hell as a hitman before finally escaping, only to land back in the hell-on-earth that is Los Angeles. Now Stark’s ready for revenge. But when his first stop saddles him with an abusive talking head, Stark discovers that the road to absolution and revenge is much longer than you’d expect, and both Heaven and Hell have their own ideas for his future.”

The sequel, Kill the Dead, is also scheduled for 2012.
