    Story
    (1495)

    When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L.A. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Sandman Slim the most enjoyable?

    Sam spade meets Philip K. Dick. An incredible story of bitter anti-hero who can't help but piss people off.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Stark is a guy you love to hate and hate to love.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    Each character that Andrews embodies in his reading gives the performance depth and weight.


    Any additional comments?

    This is better than any of the plethora of vampire and zombie books that are disgracing the books stores these days. Forget Twilight and Walking Dead, here comes Sandman Slim: The moster who kills monsters!

    A human diplomat creates an interstellar incident when he kills an alien diplomat in a most unusual way. To avoid war, Earth's government must find an equally unusual object: A type of sheep ("The Android's Dream"), used in the alien race's coronation ceremony. To find the sheep, the government turns to Harry Creek, ex-cop, war hero and hacker extraordinaire.

    Story

    I first read this book when it came out and was excited when it showed up on the just added list here on Audible. This has to be one of the best sci-fi books of our time. The story is fast paced and laugh out loud funny! But an audio book is only as good as it's performance. And what a performance! Wil Wheaton makes each character come alive. I could picture each character in my mind. It is a must have for any sci-fi fan. I have been getting books from audible for a number of years and this has to be the best I have ever listened to.
