The Six-Gun Tarot

Book 1, Golgotha

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Six-Gun Tarot is the first book in the twisted weird west world of the Golgotha series by R.S. Belcher.
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.

R.S. Belcher's The Six-Gun Tarot is "an astonishing blend of first-rate steampunk fantasy and Western adventure." (Library Journal, Starred Review)

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 05, 2012 – Golgotha, Nev., is an unlikely place for humans to battle ancient evil, but that's precisely the fate awaiting sheriff Jon Highfather; his half-human deputy, Mutt; blustering mayor Harry Pratt; and runaway boy Jim Negrey. Angels imprisoned the Greate Olde Wurm under a mountain; millennia later, in 1869, Reverend Ambrose's zombie army is about to set it free. The Wild West was never as wild as Golgotha, nor as mysterious; everyone here has secrets. Jon is aware some things just can't be explained, but accepts whatever he must to protect his town. Meanwhile, the mayor struggles to reconcile his religion and his homosexuality, and an angel and Lucifer debate God's plan. 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.

Customer Reviews

Great Read!

An enjoyable read. Beer and pretzels of the literary world.

Great read

Like HP Lovecraft, China Mieville, and Louis L'Amour all rolled into one, the Six-Gun Tarot takes place on the post-Civil War old west. There are a myriad of interesting characters, story lines, and dark mythologies built into this astoundingly original work. Equally as important, Belcher proves a good story teller who grab your interest within a few pages and not let go. It makes not only for a fun and thrilling read, but the hope that this is only the first in a series to be enjoyed over the years.

Great Read

An apocalyptic western with a steampunk influence? Who would have thought? I am so glad I took a chance on this book! I can't wait for the next one!
