Book Description

James Stark, a.k.a. Sandman Slim, has a new job, but being the new Lucifer in town gives fresh meaning to the word "Hell." Especially when he hears of hideous massacres near a haunted fortress out on Hell's frontier.

As far as Stark's concerned, the more dead Hellions, the better, but he still has to prove that no one screws with Sandman Slim. And facing creatures so terrible even Hell does not want them is no cakewalk, even for Lucifer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little snack before the next Sandman Slim? July 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
On a subtle tip from @GreatDismal I found the Sandman Slim novels, and it's quite a meaty universe Mr. Kadrey has created for himself. Putting the novels and plotlines and spoilers aside, this short story explores a section of Hell older than the Pandemonium of Lucifer. It's a nice twist, full of the treachery and violence you'd expect in Hell, with some apt humor and the decidedly antiheroic take on it all by James Stark his own self. It's priced about right, and if Mr. Kadrey were industrious he could build a nice steady stream of these shorts for his loyal following. I think the fact that his source material is so fertile has as much to do with this as his skill in making really solid B movies in my head. This is a worthy buy, a good diversion until the new novel hits in the fall of 2012.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay short story August 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This was quite good though not up to the standards of his full length books.
It can be read as a standalone story but having read his other novels in the series will probably make it more enjoyable.

It ends at location 621 (69%) and then has an extract from the forth book in the series. so despite the cheap price it isn't particularly good value for money

3.0 out of 5 stars It's actually three short stories January 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Or at least part of three short stories. The stories by them selves were funny, but don't buy this book if you are looking for a story with an ending.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Little Something to Whet Your Appetite for More November 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This brief short story takes place just after the events in Aloha from Hell: A Sandman Slim Novel. Stark is the new Lucifer and is immediately thrown into an adventure in one of Hell's spooky corners to deal with a disturbance in a haunted manor. Something about the style feels a bit... off. Stark's narration does not flow as smoothly as in the novels, and it's hard to say how significant these events will be in the grand scheme of the series. I am not certain if this will be important in the next novel in the series, Devil Said Bang: A Sandman Slim Novel. It's a fun little story, but certainly not my favorite - but I am looking forward to seeing more of how Stark will handle his new job as the ruler of Hell.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just about what I expected September 6, 2012
By Stormy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Book was good. Some how it got messed up in the story telling because I thought it was the end of the book and for some reason it repeated the third half of the book again. Otherwise it was good.

4.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't find the dollhouse September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great read. Kadrey is always so good with the bloodshed & the remorse. It's what I want in a hero, someone prepared to do the dirty work and then feel regret without the remorse eating him up.
