Starts out with a chase. Sandman Slim vs. the Nouveau-Vamp with a ‘tude. Then it gets exciting. Seems our hero has turned to bounty hunting to make a living. Bounty hunting of a most supernatural kind: Vampires, and Hellions, and Jades, oh my! When ol’ Lucifer comes to town to make a movie (based on his life no less), he needs him a bodyguard, oh yeah. Who ya gonna call? Why our boy Stark, of course. Duh. It’s not a bad gig, though, and there are fringe benefits … like a little female companionship courtesy of one Brigitte Bardo. (Who are you to judge? Were you celibate in Hell for eleven years?)

Back among the living and becoming more human every day. Not that that’s particularly a good thing for our man about town Stark, slayer of monsters and Devil’s wingman, down and out in the City of the Angels, always caught between a roc and a hard case, always. No breaks for the Sandman. Oh, no. Bring on the zombies, baby. Zombies. What happens when a half-angel gets bitten by a zombie? Well the angel side’s not especially affected, of course, but the human side … well, that’s quite another story. Dig it. --PMH

Supernatural fantasy has a new antihero

Life sucks, and then you die. Or, if you're James Stark, you spend eleven years in Hell as a hitman before finally escaping, only to land back in the hell-on-earth that is Los Angeles.

Now Stark's back, and ready for revenge. And absolution, and maybe even love. But when his first stop saddles him with an abusive talking head, Stark discovers that the road to absolution and revenge is much longer than you'd expect, and both Heaven and Hell have their own ideas for his future.

Resurrection sucks. Saving the world is worse.

Darkly twisted, irreverent, and completely hilarious, "Sandman Slim" is the breakthrough novel by an acclaimed author.
