I recently reviewed Sandman Slim, a gritty urban fantasy novel by Richard Kadrey, and wouldn't you know it is the first book of a trilogy. Sometimes I am just sick to death with trilogies and series, but for Slim I will make an exception. Kill the Dead, which picks up where Sandman Slim left off, was published in 2010 through Eos.
What's the story about this time around? Don't know, don't need to know. The characters were so fun and so outrageous--and so bad-ass--Kadrey could have them on a day trip to Disneyland and I'd probably want to read it. But, considering Slim didn't exactly ride off into the sunset at the end of the first book, and there are plenty of angelic and demonic entities that would like to see him burned at the stake (or worse), chances are pretty good that he'll get into loads more trouble.
So, have you read Kill the Dead yet? Did you think it was a good follow-up to Sandman Slim? Share your opinion.
