Beautifully enjoyable dustpunk (very) weird western: In an alt-American-Western setting, instead of science you have demons bound up. They heat water for steam. They expand and push bullets. They may – or may not – corrupt a bit of your soul each time you use it. Jacobs has honourable mercenaries riding alongside a ship filled with nobles – there’s as much Rome in the world as John Wayne. In the background are the inscrutable stretchers – the superhuman natives with their own agenda, inscrutable and confusing, but they seem to have a strong moral code – just their own. Fascinating stuff, and very good indeed.
