Kadrey, Richard  
Sandman Slim #5: Kill City Blues
Stark has managed to get out of Hell, renounce his title as the new Lucifer, and settle back into life in Los Angeles. But along the way he misplaced the Qomrama Om Ya, a weapon from the banished older gods who are also searching for their lost power. The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall - a multi-story copy of LA - infested with Lurkers and wretched bottom-feeding Sub Rosa families, squatters who have formed tight tribes to guard their tiny territories. Somewhere in the kill zone of the former mall is a dead man with the answers Stark needs. All Stark has to do is find the dead man, get back out alive, and outrun some angry old gods - and a few killers - on his tail.

With a prim assistant, a roving vampiric photographer, and a talking dog who holds the key to the mystery, he sets out to get the truth.
