Al W Moe is the author of five nonfiction books and a novel. As a casino fanatic, he toured the clubs of Nevada taking 100's of photos and gathering interviews and stories from everyone he could convince to talk to him - from slot change people to casino owners.
His non-fiction works chronicle the early days of Nevada casinos and relate the stories of how the Mob influenced gaming, how a "new" face, Howard Hughes, ushered in a change to corporate ownership, and how the casinos have expanded over the years. Each book includes dozens of vintage photos from Las Vegas, Reno, Lake Tahoe, and other Nevada cities.
Moe is also an avid blogger with several popular blogs on sites like Casino Gaming at About.com and his casino story blog at NevadaCasinoHistory.blogspot.com
