    Forty miles in the middle of nowhere, there is a town called Gol

    Forty miles in the middle of nowhere, there is a town called Golgotha. It sits in the middle of the desert. Silver mines once made this town thrive but now it is a collection of very unique residents. A boy with a magical eye, a man that can shift into a coyote, a mother and wife that is secretly a trained assassin, a shop keeper with a reanimated wife...Golgotha is quite distinctive.

    Even in this unusual town even stranger things are happening. People are going missing, an ancient evil is coming and only the residents of Golgotha may be able to save the world and their small town.

    The Six-Gun Tarot is a highly complex and intricate plot. This was not an easy read, my mind was constantly trying to figure out where this is all going and is it possible to get any more bizarre. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, in a mind blowing kind of way. It is just so beyond what you conceive as the norm it sucked me right in. Many different spiritual, cultural and religious beliefs are turned, twisted, convoluted and then woven into the fundamental fabric of this storyline. I couldn’t help but think The Six-Gun Tarot is the closest book I ever found to DUNE by Frank Herbert. This is a stimulating, mind boggling plot packed with fascinating and atypical characters that merge into a cohesive accounting in the end... 5 Stars

    This ARC copy of The Six-Gun Tarot was given to me by Netgalley and Tor/Forge-Tor Books in exchange for an honest review. Published Date January 22, 2013.

    Phenomenal Book, Stunning First Novel!

    There were so many fantastic- and fantastical things- in and about this book, I simply do not know where to begin. At 300 pages (read in one sitting), I sheepishly looked down at the page count- hoping there were at least 300 left-and was delighted, not dismayed, to find there were nearly twice that still to explore. "Six" is made rich by its intricate plot lines and comical character exploits. Belcher also probes the most positive heights, as well as ineffably vile depths, that living and nonliving creatures are capable and willing of employing in their treatment of each other. There are loads of fascinating, innovative science fiction and horror plot devices. Secret organizations of kick-ass women, religions and mythos of every sort, clever wordsmithing and a plethora of supremely loved and vilely hated characters make this book a fun, interesting, stimulating, rollicking ride that takes the reader to the end of the world...and back? Is Golgatha the edge of the world, being the prize at the end of the 40-Mile Desert....or is it the literal site of the End Of The World? You will have to find out for yourself. Enjoy!

    Outstanding first novel

    Tight, fast paced historical fantasy with a fun (!?!) Lovecraftian flavor.

    Simply the best first novel I have read in years. The story combines several mythologies & religions with the wild west and an apocalypse too dire to be contemplated.
