Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Head on over there to see what other bloggers are waiting on! This week I’ve found a book with this tagline, which I could absolutely not ignore:
“Buffy meets Deadwood in a dark, wildly imaginative historical fantasy.”
In order to appreciate the wonderful details on the cover, I had to show you the image as large as possible. Isn’t it fantastic? The Six-Gun Tarot comes out on January 22 2013 from Tor. Here’s the story description from Goodreads:
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.
Having recently read an amazing supernatural western, The Dead of Winter by Lee Collins, I’m pretty excited to get my hands on this one. What are you waiting on this week?
