Sandman Slim has been to Heaven and Hell and many places in between, but now he finds himself in an unknown land: the far, far edge of the Tenebrae, the desolate home of the lost dead. Making his way inland with nothing but his unerring instinct for trouble to guide him, he collides with a caravan of the damned on a mysterious crusade, led by the ruthless Magistrate. Alone and with no clue how to get back home, he throws in with this brutal bunch made up of human souls, Hellion deserters, rogue angels - and Father Traven.
Slim didn't land in Tenebrae by chance. His little stunt of trying to open Heaven has set off a tsunami across the universe. Now the afterlife is falling apart because of the ensuing warfare. And when Heaven finds out Slim is close by, the angels put a fat bounty on his head.
It's one thing to ride with a ferocious criminal pack across the treacherous plains - it's another to do it when everyone in the land of the dead is itching to keep you there permanently. But Slim's not too worried. He's been fighting cosmic forces bent on destroying Heaven, Hell, Earth, and him for years. A pack of vicious bounty hunters, vengeful angels, and dangerous enemies with friendly smiles isn't going to stop him fixing the chaos he's caused...one way or another.

5 stars as usual
I love the Sandman Slim stories, this one is without his usual companions, since he wakes up dead in an unusual place. While trying to get his bearings, he's over ran by caravan of roughians on a religious crusade, headed up by the mysterious Magistrate. Stark, has to play it by ear, as to how to escape, finding some old allies along the way. The narration is on spot with MacLeod Andrews; can't imagine any other voice for Sandman Slim.

A tighter, but no less cosmic Sandman Slim
James Stark, aka Sandman Slim, is officially dead, but in his universe, there is all kinds of dead. While he tries to figure out where he is and why he’s there, he’s trying not to get deader.
As is my preference with this series, I listened to the Audible version, performed by McCleod Andrews. I recommend it. It’s a remarkable performance. Kadrey specializes in operatic rollercoaster ride plots and Andrews’ voice brings the book to life and keeps the operatic scope tethered to humanity.
