A new gun-slinging fantasy series mixing the Wild West, Steampunk, angels, and a town that exists for only a day begins from Solaris Books. Guy Adams’ The Good, The Bad and The Infernal is a weird western, a gun-toting, cigarillo-chewing fantasy built from hangman’s rope and spent bullets!

 The Good, The Bad and The Infernal will be the first book in the exciting new Heaven’s Gate Chronicle series. 

"Guy's writing is fresh, exciting and laced with a wicked sense of humour,” said Jonathan Oliver, editor-in-chief of Solaris. “I love a good Western, but Guy's new series is so much more than that. The Heaven's Gate Chronicles promises to be a hell of a ride, and heaven to read."

 “You wish to meet your God?” the gunslinger asked, “well now... that’s easy to arrange.”

Roughly every one hundred years a town appears. From a small village in the peaks of Tibet to a gathering of mud huts in the jungles of South American, it can take many forms. It exists for twenty-four hours then vanishes, but for that single day it contains the greatest miracle a man could imagine: a doorway to Heaven.

It is due to appear on the 21st September 1889 as a ghost town in the American Midwest. When it does there are many who hope to be there:

Travelling preacher Obeisance Hicks and his simple messiah, a brain-damaged Civil War veteran; Henry and Harmonium Jones and their freak show pack of outlaws; the Brothers of Ruth and their sponsor Lord Forset (inventor of the Forset Thunderpack and other incendiary modes of personal transport); finally, an aging gunslinger who lost his wings at the very beginning of creation and wants nothing more than to settle old scores.
