Aloha from Hell, by Richard Kadrey
Aloha From Hell is the final book in the first Sandman Slim story arc and it does not fail to deliver. Our main character, James Stark, has one thing on his mind and that’s to get Mason Faim, the man who sent Stark to hell in the first place. Our poor Stark has gone to hell and back (literally) to get Mason. As I read the series (and this book) I really felt bad for him because angels and demons hate him throughout the books and he just can’t seem to catch a break, but it makes for an awesome read for us readers. There’s tons of great action in this book. Mr. Kadrey does a wonderful job describing the setting of the book, integrating the city of Los Angeles in a reaaaaaaaally awesome way when Stark goes Hell. That part was cool and you should read the book to see how cool it was. Devil Said Bang, the further adventures of Stark, comes out in August, and MGSD will host Richard’s launch party! – Carlos

Don’t Ever Get Old by Daniel Friedman
Don’t Ever Get Old is centered on Buck Schatz, an 87-year old retired Memphis detective. His presence was requested by one of his old army buddies, Jim Wallace, who was captured in a concentration camp during WWII alongside him. Jim confesses to Buck that Heinrich Ziegler, the SS captain that tortured them relentlessly, had actually survived an attack from the Russians and had bribed him with one of many Nazi gold bars Ziegler had in his possession so that Jim would let him to pass through a military checkpoint. Jim’s confession starts the search for Ziegler and the Nazi gold, with murder and adventure aplenty. This book is incredibly well written and has many fantastic plot twists. Everyone is a suspect! The relationship between Buck and his grandson, Tequila, adds another very interesting element to the story. They love each other, but they don’t particularly like each other because of the generation gap. All in all I don’t think I’ll be forgetting this awesome story anytime soon. – Carlos
