The Occult Detective Illustrated Tarot Deck

Before the embers of Lùnastal have even grown cold, I am pleased to offer the latest addition to my growing Tarot enterprise —  The Occult Detective Illustrated Tarot Deck.


Taking a cue from my short-lived Weirder Tales online serial and even shorter-lived Occult Detective Illustrated comic magazine, I tapped into those past resources and conjured some additional art to create my latest deck experience.


The Occult Detective Illustrated Tarot is a 78 card Tarot Deck featuring characters and themes from my the supernatural fiction.

Utilizing lessons learned creating the Skrá Tarot, the Illustrated Deck is an evocative and creative divination tool.


The 22 cards of the Major Arcana follow the structure of the classic Tarot, with illustrations carefully constructed to not only represent characters and locations from my Liber Monstrorum and Cairnwood Manor book series, but to tap into the recurrent themes and archetypes inherent in the mystical journey of the reader.



The suits of the Minor Arcana are reinterpretations of their classic identifications and feature the same artwork (with slight framing differences) as found in the Skrá Deck. The Court cards, however, are more inline with the Major Arcana, with each card representing an appropriate character from my published works.


All my Tarot Decks are available for purchase through my Etsy store, TheOccultDetective.

My occult detective collection, First Born: Tales of the Liber Monstrorum , and both novels in the Cairnwood Manor series — Shadows Over Somerset and Keepers of the Dead — are available via Amazon and other online retail outlets in both ebook and trade paperback.
