Dice, Drink, and Ghosts
by Jake Murphy
''It is a barely describable thing, to feel what a gambler feels. A man of gambling cares not, not really, for shiny jewels or sparkling riches. He is a man of sentiment. He is a man who does not want, but longs to feel.''
Returning to the age of the Restoration, Jake Murphy celebrates this Halloween season with a tale about gambling with ghosts in Charles II's bankrupt and drunken England.
