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.

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!

I'm not certain why someone compared this to Tim Powers...which was part of the reason I picked it up. Powers pretty much always deals with resurrection, and this book comes close to that only in the "Stained", who may as well be classic zombies. That said, it was a lot of fun, with enough of the supernatural that even the religious overtones didn't put me off. I appreciate the strong female characters, and am looking forward to some of the "back story" of the sheriff, and hoping that Clay doesn't get to realize some of his intentions.

So much happens in this book and it's so different and creative, I couldn't put it down! Well written with fascinating characters like a sheriff that can't seem to be killed, and a deputy that is part human and part coyote, the Six-Gun Tarot is not your average fantasy-western-horror. I love the atmosphere Belcher's writing creates, and the unspoken and mysterious hints of things still to be revealed. Highly recommended!

Lovecraft meets Apocrypha meets steampunk.

Interesting blend of western, fantasy, & steam punk.  It kept me turning pages until the end.  My interest is now up for the next book by this author.

This had to be one of the strangest books I've read! In a good way! It was truly amazing.....Mormans, angels, numerous Gods, a little Dr Frankenstein thrown in, kick-a#s females, so many cultures & mythologies rolled up in one book....and very well done!....more strange going-ons then can be written in a quick review...I surely hope there is a sequel to this...I would love to find out more about the fascinating characters in this book and the town of Golgotha!

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.

Excellent novel, very original. Not like anything else out there. Interesting story, great characters, fun to read. Looking forwatd to more from this author. Best way to describe this book without any spoilers: supernatural western.
