James Stark, a.k.a. Sandman Slim, has a new job, but being the new Lucifer in town gives fresh meaning to the word "Hell." Especially when he hears of hideous massacres near a haunted fortress out on Hell's frontier.
As far as Stark's concerned, the more dead Hellions, the better, but he still has to prove that no one screws with Sandman Slim. And facing creatures so terrible even Hell does not want them is no cakewalk, even for Lucifer.

NOT BEING KILLED IS PRETTY HIGH ON MY AGENDA
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger and you don't mess around with Slim. Slim is still the bad A as in all the other books and he is still sarcastically witty. If you have not read Sandman, I would suggest you start at the beginning, that was by far the best book. The rest of the books have less story and are pretty much all about the sarcasm. I love this type of dry humor, but plot lines and lack of new interesting characters keeps me from being too interested. I might venture into some of Kadry's other universes, but I think I am done messy around with Slim.
