WOW! Slick does it again!

Exact sales figures aren't available yet from Slick's McCarran Airport signing at Borders yesterday, but they're over the 40 mark once again! An important celebrity dropped by, one of the most famous card cheating authorities, George Joseph. You can almost make out Slick and George holding up each other's books. (Tony we love you but HELP! We need a new event photographer. E-mail us here on the site if you're interested in the job.)

Anyway, the two main guys had a lot to the KC card company, makers of marked decks and loaded dice. Plus Slick told George about meeting Billy Morgan, one of the biggest crossroader's in the business who Slick talks about in THIEF! George is the genuine article. The two authors exchanged books. You need to check out his Website at You can even order George's hot book titled, Why Shouldn't a Woman Wear Red in a Casino? on his site. You'll never guess the answer.

Also, a couple of gondoliers lost their way. They were looking for the Grand Canal. Slick steered them in the right direction. They were so thrilled, they bought a book.

A Regular Gig Every Sunday

Well, mob readers. Slick's book signing at McCarran Airport Borders Books in Las Vegas was such a success on Sunday, that store manager, Anna Chapman wants Slick there every Sunday she has books in stock. Slick sold 42 copies of THIEF!

Anna said it's really remarkable considering the fact that people don't buy many hard cover books at airports. Too bulky. But that didn't stop 42 people from buying THIEF!

If you missed last Sunday, you can catch up with former thief Slick Hanner at Borders again:
