Tarot expert Barbara Moore provides a thorough interpretation of each card, explaining the most important elements of it.

Tarot: Temple of Paper, House of Cards breaks new ground in the study of the Tarot. The primary goal of this book is not to provide a user manual or card interpretation guide. Nor is it an argument for any one school of thought in regards to the cards, their origin or intended use. Instead, the purpose is to help beginners and adepts alike appreciate the never yet ever changing Tarot in a genuinely new way. The thought exercise that creates this lens through which to understand the heart of the art includes techniques for internalizing the cards, their combinations and overlooked complexities in an immersive manner. These do not compete with prevalent methods but only enhance them. The Tarot is different things to different people. It has survived, and thrived through more than six hundred years of use because of its elastic evolution. This book encapsulates what it was and what it is while still adding to the methods available for its users. Additionally, new research is offered that is sure to surprise even those already well-read on the subject. And speaking of that subject, the practice of Tarot is fascinating on multiple levels including the historic, artistic, folkloric, psychological and spiritual. All of those and more are touched on in a work meant to revitalize not the Tarot itself, but the ways in which we can better understand and make use of it.

Employing a practical, mathematical approach, author Kenneth Coombs presents a scientific and comprehensive analysis of the twenty-two Tarot cards in the Major Arcana. This detailed examination deciphers the reactions and interactions of the Tarot cards with each other, rather than simply the individual meanings of each card. He shares the results of the 231 possible combinations. In Tarot Alchemy, Coombs, a chemist with more than thirty years of Tarot card reading experience, discusses a novel approach to understanding Tarot. He details the process of alchemy, which involves looking at each Tarot card as an element. The interactions of the Tarot cards are like reactions that create molecules, and it is the interactions of the Tarot cards with each other that give depth and enlightenment in a Tarot reading. This process has given him the ability to determine specific timeframes and even names of people and places using the cards. His approach of deciphering the interactions in a scientific way leads to new insights about the meanings of the Tarot cards in a reading. Tarot Alchemy shows how learning to find patterns in the cards strengthens intuitive abilities and unlocks the doors to understanding the Tarot cards.

We asked twenty-six authors to write stories based on the Tarot, with the cards determining which stories the authors would write. Over the course of several months we reached out to some of the best genre authors and proposed our idea. Once we had our authors, we took a tarot deck and a list of all twenty-six names. We would read the author’s name, shuffle the deck, and draw a card. That tarot card and its traits were all the authors had to go on. The card was removed, the deck was reshuffled, and the next name was read off. This anthology contains twenty-six stories based on the twenty-two cards of the Major Arcana and the four cards of the Minor Arcana. Award-winning and New York Times bestselling authors combine their talents to deal out twenty-six dark tales influenced by the Tarot.
