Never Got Into: Nothing Burns in Hell by Philip Jose Farmer, 1998, 0312864701.
Crider was plugging Farmer a bit ago after Farmer died earlier this year. Crider even mentioned this book in particular and also mentioned that Lansdale is a fan. That was two good references.
But, I could not get into the novel past the first few pages. Too bad, because the cover says, "A really violent, sometimes funny novel."
