Teaser Tuesday - a snippet from what I've been reading!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading (http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/). Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I'm writing up my review of Richard Kadrey's latest Sandman Slim novel, "Kill The Dead." Here is a teaser from this delightfully scary, screwball horror story!

A conversation between Sandman Slim aka James Stark and Lucifier -

"That's the first time I've heard you crack a joke about Hell."
"Hell is hilarious if you are the one in charge!"

Granted it's not my usual genre of reading, but I really enjoyed the campy-ness of "Kill The Dead!" Just right for the Halloween season upon us!

"Gallows humor" doesn't quite cut it!

In contest to the story, it's actually sarcasm - the devil is a very sarcastic dude!
