Book Review: Library Staff

Will Duke, Information Systems Manager, recommends Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey.

Today is Halloween. My offering to you is a magical mashup of urban fantasy and hard-boiled detective, mixed with just about everything else. 

“I wake up on a pile of smoldering garbage and leaves in the old Hollywood Forever cemetery behind the Paramount Studio lot on Melrose.”

Beyond the borders of Kerch, a dangerous drug is brewing...
