cigarettes are called Maledictions in this book.

that should tell you a lot.

cigarettes are called Maledictions in this whole series, though, and i'm 83% certain that the stars i'm giving for this book is really a knee-jerk to richard kadrey's snappy dialogue and cool, in general, and not to this book, exclusively.

when i watch Equilibrium, i know what i want: badassery and cool toys. and i get those things here, plus the wonderfully idiosyncratic language that immediately tells me this is kadrey i'm reading. though Devil Said Bang feels like the weakest (pages of nothing really happening, dragging) compared to the earlier books--almost as though this was an unplanned pregnancy--, it is entertainment enough. a day's read.
