About the Book

This unusual literary collection is a fascinating read for gamblers and gamers alike, containing a variety of "larger than life" short stories on a gambling theme by diverse authors. Contents Include: Blood Money by David Karp; Taste by Roald Dahl; Everything is Wild by James Thurber; The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell; The Wager by Anton Chekhov; Two Days Wasted in Kansas City by William Saroyan, Swindler's Luck by Ben Hecht; Katz by Nelson Algren; A Piece of Pie by Damon Runyon; Elementals by Stephen Vincent Benet; The Rocking-Horse Winner by D. H. Lawrence; The Resourceful Miss Railey by Irvin S. Cobb; A Watcher by the Dead by Ambrose Bierce; A Fowl Disaster by John Taintor Foot; and Gambler's Luck by Albert Richard Wetjen. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
