Ted Sares-I loved the intro paragraphs too…only one caveat…the hags may be” foul smelling” but the slots are anything but “mindless”, they are more computerized than the gambling public realizes…there’s much more going on inside in addition to the random number generator….all of it favoring the house.
Dollar, great catch. I did. I used the James Ellroy technique of fast and moving sentences. The “room vibed testosterone” is an example. I sometimes use it but pick my spots.
Thanks both Mikes and Pug for your kind words. It make doing these thing all the more worthwhile.
Pug, Tony Spilotro was a straight-out maniac as was his brother. They rauised some big hell in Vegas before they got clipped. As for the stable guys, there is no scarier types than those crazies. A mix of Chicago 1955 pin setters, carneys. and stable hands will get you one very dangerous pervert back in the day.
What an enjoyable read. I had friends like that back in Chicago. I Remember the Spilotro brothers from Steimetz High School. They were later portrayed in Casino. Joe Pesci? They were crazies. Also, the maniacs from the horse stables were some bad dudes as well.
