Product description

Nevada, 1869: Beyond the pitiless 40-Mile Desert lies Golgotha, a cattle town that hides more than its share of unnatural secrets. The sheriff bears the mark of the noose around his neck; some say he is a dead man whose time has not yet come. His half-human deputy is kin to coyotes. The mayor guards a hoard of mythical treasures. A banker's wife belongs to a secret order of assassins. And a shady saloon owner, whose fingers are in everyone's business, may know more about the town's true origins than he's letting on. A haven for the blessed and the damned, Golgotha has known many strange events, but nothing like the primordial darkness stirring in the abandoned silver mine overlooking the town. Bleeding midnight, an ancient evil is spilling into the world, and unless the sheriff and his posse can saddle up in time, Golgotha will have seen its last dawn...and so will all of Creation.

Review quote

"Belcher draws readers into a fascinating world that reads like a mashup of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Deadwood." Part western, part urban fantasy, part coming-of-age tale, Belcher's story balances all pieces perfectly."--"RT Book Reviews" "Against the backdrop of Chinese and Mormon mythology and the Civil War, with a bit of Frankenstein for color, the mix of theology, frontier justice, and zombies is merely cover for an intense and irreverent exploration of good, evil, and free will."--"Publishers Weekly," starred review "A jaw-dropping first novel that explodes across genre lines. Wild, gritty, insanely inventive and a hell of a lot of fun!"--Jonathan Maberry, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Dust & Decay" and "Assassin's Code""A steampunk'd romp through a Mythic West drenched in blood and magic." --Rosemary Edghill, coauthor of "The Shadow of Albion""If you want to see what Weird Westerns are all about, there's no better place to start than "The Six-Gun Tarot.""--Mike Resnick, award-wining author of "Santiago"
