Publisher's Summary

R. S. Belcher's debut novel, The Six-Gun Tarot, was enthusiastically greeted by critics and listeners, who praised its wildly inventive mixture of dark fantasy, steampunk, and the Wild West. Now Belcher returns to Golgotha, Nevada, a bustling frontier town that hides more than its fair share of unnatural secrets.

1870. A haven for the blessed and the damned, including a fallen angel, a mad scientist, a pirate queen, and a deputy who is kin to coyotes, Golgotha has come through many nightmarish trials, but now an army of 32 outlaws, lunatics, serial killers, and cannibals are converging on the town, drawn by a grisly relic that dates back to the Donner Party...and the dawn of humanity.

Sheriff Jon Highfather and his deputies already have their hands full dealing with train robbers, a mysterious series of brutal murders, and the usual outbreaks of weirdness. But with 32 of the most vicious killers on Earth riding into Golgotha in just a few day's time, the town and its people will be tested as never before - and some of them will never be the same.

The Shotgun Arcana is even more spectacularly ambitious and imaginative than The Six-Gun Tarot, and confirms R. S. Belcher's status as a rising star.

Just gets better

More action, characters and multiple plots! My only complaint is the background is too loud. This would make a GREAT mini series!! Better than Walking Dead or Mexican Gods!

This is how you end a book!

I purchased the next installment before leaving this review.
I loved it. I liked the plot twists and the character, um..., surprises(?) but what really got me was the end. I did NOT see that coming but, looking back, it was right there.
This is great. This adaptation is very well done. It's fun to be excited about reading the next book in a series and this series has done that to me. Thank you, Mr. Belcher.
