||Richard Kadrey mixes high-energy action with noir suspense and a healthy dose of paranormal in his Sandman Slim novels. In ALOHA FROM HELL, Stark (aka Sandman Slim) again gets caught in the middle of the war between Good and Evil, with his hometown of L.A. as the primary battleground. In order to stop a psychotic killer, rescue the woman he loves, and prevent the ultimate showdown between the forces of Heaven against the forces of Hell, Stark must make a journey to hell, a place he is all too familiar.
||In Sandman Slim Stark came back from hell for revenge.In Kill the Dead he tackled both a zombie plague and being Lucifer?s bodyguard.Once again all is not right in L.A. Lucifer is back in Heaven, God is on vacation, and an insane killer mounts a war against both Heaven and Hell. Stark?s got to head back down to his old stomping grounds in Hell to rescue his long lost love, stop an insane serial killer, prevent both Good and Evil from completely destroying each other, and stop the demonic Kissi from ruining the party for everyone.Even for Sandman Slim, that?s a tall order. And it?s only the beginning.?Don?t compare Kadrey?s prose with Stephenie Meyer?s, or even Joss Whedon?s Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Those works are mere fluffy soap operas next to Kadrey?s writing.? ?Seattle Post-Intelligencer
