Kadrey, Richard -- Aloha From Hell
Badass sorcerer goes back to Hell. Hell turns out to be a lot like
L.A. I liked this series more when the scope was a little smaller.
Lucifer slumming around on Earth is an excuse for banter; but when we
go to Hell and meet a whole lot of demon princes, plus various
archangels and deity-figures and machines that run the entire
Universe, it stops being at all convincing. Whatever trick Gaiman had
for writing that level of numen, Kadrey lacks. This is nothing to be
ashamed of! But it means you should write about sorcerers and
second-string demons, not about God.
