Overview
The border town called Sixes is quiet in the heat of the day. Still, Appaloosa Elim has heard the stories about what wakes at sunset: gunslingers and shapeshifters and ancient animal gods whose human faces never outlast the daylight.

And the daylight is running out. Elim's so-called 'partner' - that lily-white lordling Sil Halfwick - has disappeared inside the old adobe walls, hell-bent on making a name for himself among Sixes' notorious black-market traders. Elim, whose worldly station is written in the bastard browns and whites of his cow-spotted face, doesn't dare show up home without him.

If he ever wants to go home again, he'd better find his missing partner fast. But if he's caught out after dark, Elim risks succumbing to the old and sinister truth in his own flesh - and discovering just how far he'll go to survive the night.

When young Sil Halfwick’s attempt to sell horses ends in abject failure, he dreads the long trek back to Hell’s Acre to admit defeat to Boss Calvert. Instead, Sil heads west toward Sixes, near the border of lands emptied of white settlers by war and invasion. It falls to Appaloosa Elim—a mixed-race man who’s older, wiser, and scorned by Sil—to try to keep the ambitious young idiot alive. Elim is experienced enough to suspect that Sil is wandering into a hive of treachery, deceit, and dark magic, but he’s quickly out of his depth when a demigod is killed and he’s accused of the murder. The racially divided societies of this weird western are uncomfortable but not implausible, and while Sil is a pompous, dangerous nitwit without much to redeem him, hapless Elim is more endearing. Thompson’s debut is clearly written and engaging even if the details of her setting remain murky. (July)
