The Perpetual Engine of Hope – 162th Edition

In 2009, Las Vegas Writes presented Restless City, a serial crime noir novel from the minds of seven local authors. This year, Writes is trying something new. Instead of having one story gradually developed by different writers, Megan Edwards, Dayvid Figler, K.W. Jeter, Oksana Marafioti, Juan Martinez, P Moss and Alissa Nutting created their own short stories based on iconic Las Vegas photographs, all put together in The Perpetual Engine of Hope, debuting this year at the Vegas Valley Book Festival. What follows are excerpts of these stories, creating a fictional past based off of a few of these slightly eerie photos.
