Description

"Sandman Slim is my kind of hero."
--Kim Harrison

"Richard Kadrey is a genius."
--Holly Black

Sandman Slim is back from Hell. After wreaking unholy havoc in author Richard Kadrey's resoundingly acclaimed Sandman Slim, the demon-slaying anti-hero and half-angel fugitive from the underworld returns in a brutally funny, eye-poppingly inventive, and totally addicting follow-up, Kill the Dead. If you're a fan of Buffy and Jim Butcher, Christopher Moore, Neil Gaiman, and Warren Ellis, or you dig the dark urban fantasy vibe of Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, and Simon Green, you'll cheer Lucifer's onetime personal assassin as he signs on as his ex-boss' Hollywood bodyguard...and takes on the zombie apocalypse almost single-handedly.

Back cover copy

Life's a bitch, then you die . . . if you're lucky

James Stark, a.k.a. Sandman Slim, crawled out of Hell, took bloody revenge for his girlfriend's murder, and saved the world along the way. After that, what do you do for an encore?

You take a lousy job tracking down monsters for money. It's a depressing gig, but it pays for your beer and cigarettes. In L.A., though, things can always get worse.

Like when Lucifer comes to town to supervise his movie biography and drafts Stark as his bodyguard. Sandman Slim has to swim with the human and inhuman sharks of L.A.'s underground power elite. That's before the murders start. And before he runs into the Czech porn star who isn't quite what she seems. Even before all those murdered people start coming back from the dead and join a zombie army that will change our world and Stark's forever.

Death bites. Life is worse. All things considered, Hell's not looking so bad.
