On a rainy night in Little Egypt, Jeep Mabry shows up on Slim’s doorstep with an old mining colleague to interrupt Slim and Anci’s Scrabble game, bringing more trouble than just misspelled words. Snake Dornan, a nickname he earned with particularly slippery schemes, bought up a few nearby houses in foreclosure, and rented one to Lizzie and Tony Meeks, by appearances a nice, young married couple. However, when he visits the house, the windows are broken, the yard is full of bikes and bikers, and there’s a telling smell of rotten eggs in the air. In order to evict them from his house, Snake needs Slim and Jeep’s help. All they need to do is deliver a letter of intent and a copy of the original lease to a group of heavily armed, meth running bikers. Should be easy, right?
This Slim in Little Egypt short story bridges the gap between Down Don’t Bother Me and Red Dog, and also includes an excerpt from Red Dog.
