Al W. Moe
AUTHOR

Al W. Moe

Al W Moe is the author of five nonfiction books and two novels. Moe toured the clubs of Nevada from big cities like Reno and Las Vegas to tiny hamlets like Topaz Lake and Fernley, meeting players and owners alike in dirty, decrepit bars and back alleys. Well, not really. Most interviews were in nice restaurants. Still, his books are filled with stories and photos from a time past that shouldn't be forgotten.

His Best Selling work, "Vegas and the Mob" started with nearly 600 pages of FBI documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. Specific details and incidents were also verified by old-time gamblers and casinos owners from the era.

Moe's latest novel, "Getting Thin is Murder" has just been nominated for a 2017 eFestival of Words award.
