Guy has conjured up a remarkable Steampunk Wild West replete with gunslingers, soldiers of fortune, mechanical menaces and monstrous animals in his first book for Solaris. In The Good, The Bad, and the Infernal, only the brave and resourceful will survive…
One day every hundred years, a town appears, its location and character different every time. The town’s name is Wormwood and it is a gateway to heaven itself. Wormwood is due to appear on the 21st September 1889, somewhere in the American Midwest, and travelling preacher Obeisance Hicks and his simple messiah hope to greet Wormwood’s arrival. But so do Henry and Harmonium Jones and their freak show pack of outlaws, the Brothers of the Order of Ruth and their sponsor Lord Forset (inventor of the Forset Thunderpack and other incendiary modes of personal transport), and an aging gunslinger with a dark history.
