Publisher Comments:

Richard Kadreys Sandman Slim—aka James Stark—is, quite simply, one of the most outrageous uber-anti-heroes ever to kick serious butt on this or any other world or dimension.

In his previous three adventures—Sandman Slim, Kill the Dead, and Aloha from Hell—Stark has fled Hell for California, taken on angels, demons, outlaw bikers, zombies, covert government operatives, and all manner of monsters, while saving humankind from total annihilation on numerous occasions. But in Devil Said Bang, he finally assumes the role he was destined for: as the new Lucifer, ruler of the Underworld.

Combining outrageously edgy humor with a dark and truly twisted vision, Richard Kadrey has once again delivered a masterful amalgam of action novel, urban fantasy, and in-your-face horror that will delight a wide range of readers—from Christopher Moore and Warren Ellis fans to the devoted adherents of Jim Butcher, Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, and Simon Green.

Synopsis:

Getting out of hell is just the beginning

What do you do after you've escaped Hell, and then gone back, uncovered the true nature of God, and then managed to become the new Lucifer?

Well, if you're James Stark, you have to figure out how to run Hell while also trying to get back out of it (again). Plus there's the small matter of surviving. Because everyone in Heaven, Hell, and in between wants to be the fastest gun in the universe, and the best way to do so is to take down Lucifer, a.k.a. James Stark.

And it's not like being in L.A. is any better—a serial killer ghost is running wild, Stark's angelic alter ego is hiding among the lost days of time with a secret cabal who can rewrite reality, and starting to care for people and life again is a real bitch for a stone-cold killer.

About the Author

Richard Kadrey has published six novels, including Sandman Slim, Kill the Dead, Aloha from Hell, Devil Said Bang, Butcher Bird, and Metrophage, plus more than fifty short stories. The bestselling writer and photographer lives in San Francisco, California.

Jeffrey Bluhm, February 18, 2014 (view all comments by Jeffrey Bluhm)
Continues the saga of James Stark started in "Sandman Slim". This novel is effectively two novellas - the first part takes place in Hell, where Sandman Slim is the new Satan, and has to not only figure out how Hell functions but then make the system serve his needs. The second part transpires when he returns to LA, where he confronts more supernatural challenges, with familiar companions from the earlier books. You'll want to read the series in order, to be able to follow the various plots and subplots, but the creativity and non-stop action that were present in the prior books continue in this one. Aside from the original and creative ideas, and flawed but engaging characters, if I could have a superpower, it would be to craft metaphors like Richard Kadrey does in this outstanding (and continuing) series.
