Earlier this morning I ended up with an unexpected (short turn around) proofing assignment for a publisher friend of mine. It’s a fascinating read and I’m having a good time with it. Half way through now… don’t know if I’ll finish before bed, but certainly before deadline.
And really, this post doesn’t mean anything except I’m trying to get back into the habit of journaling. Things will get more interesting later… maybe 🙂
Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Not a bad entry in the modern magic noir genre, but not a great one either. It’s serviceable. That said, there’s a lot of moments where we as reader need to know something which is conveniently told to us in the form of clunky exposition just before we need to know it.
It’s the first of a series, and I can see how it can be a continuing story, but not sure I want to keep up with the characters.
