I think that having read the Kindle short recently made this a bit better for me than it would have been otherwise. It did seem to have a feeble ending.
I have enjoyed Kadrey's Sandman Slim, which surpised me because I was never able to finish Butcher Bird, which is odd considering how similar it is to this series. I also though Metrophage was just okay.
This was fun, and I'm not sorry that another is due out next year.
