Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A sharp-edged urban fantasy, drenched in blood and cynicism, tipping its hat to Sam Peckinpah, Raymond Chandler, and the anti-heroes of Hong Kong cinema. Kadrey brings it off through the propulsive force of Stark’s in-your face, first-person, present-tense narration. It’s a bravura performance.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Sarcastic, irreverent and ridiculously enjoyable riff on the Urban Fantasy genre…A lot like a mosh pit—rough, exuberant, unpredictable—and a heck of a lot of fun.” Miami Herald
“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 codirect from a script by Jim Thompson and S. Clay Wilson.” William Gibson, award-winning author
