This story, lacking a greater context is neither sci-fi nor fantasy. It is 100% Western. A bad-ass but desperate bank robber is forced into a showdown with her former compatriots in a dusty ghost town. It's an excellent story, which does a great job of balancing extreme violence with sensitivity. [In that greater context; the main character here is the protagonist of Abercrombie's 'Red Country'; which I have yet to read, but it is definitely set in a fantasy world.] And I definitely plan on reading it.
