Devil Said Bang: A Sandman Slim Novelby Richard Kadrey

Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, Beaverton, OR
After 10 years and 13 adventures, The Witch with No Name (Voyager) is the triumphant conclusion to Kim Harrison's Hollows series. Rachel Morgan has come a long way from her early days as an inexperienced bounty hunter. To save her best friend Ivy's soul and the rest of the living vampires, and to keep the demonic ever-after and our own world from utter destruction at the hands of fanatics, she must risk everything. In The Getaway God (Voyager), the sixth high-octane adventure of Richard Kadrey's bestselling Sandman Slim series, James Stark must save himself — and the entire world — from the wrath of some enraged and vengeful ancient gods.
Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
