Hallowed Ground -- Steven Savile & David Naill Wilson

The weird western is a special category, and it's always a treat to run across a new one, especially one this good. David Nial Wilson and Steven Savile give everything you could ask for: signs, portents, mysteries, and wonders; blazing guns; snakes; life and death and returns from the dead; deals with the devil; love that goes beyond life; ancient forces doing battle outside a small western town; hidden identities; and more. It's all finely detailed, with lots of atmospheric description interspersed among the action scenes. If you're looking for something different, here's a book that delivers.
