Sandman Slim review

Sandman Slim - Richard Kadrey

Surprisingly good, for a pop-horror novel, would make a not-half-bad miniseries on SyFy. Writing style is suitably snarky, if a little cheeky at times. Characters, including that of Slim, are original and refreshing. The plot is strong and cool, with original unexpected elements creeping in here and there throughout. Author has a good sense of humor. I think you'll enjoy it, but you never get the feeling that it's anything more than a confection, although a tasty one.
