BRIAN MAYCOCK: The House Always Wins

The wheel is spinning.
I am gambling on red.

If this pays off I will be very rich.
It will be the perfect casino heist.
Only…
the traffic light is green. A truck hits me side on.

The wheel is spinning. I can’t control…

This getaway is strictly
no dice.


Brian Maycock lives in Glasgow, Scotland. His short stories have appeared in magazines including Dreamcatcher and The Weekly News.
