"The Last Days of Las Vegas" has been provided by its author, Roy Hayes, especially for PDFCHM.

“Cryptic as they come, with layers of mystery unfolding gradually, this new spy thriller is really something different: a chess puzzle that teases and  entices you on, with loads of action and appropriate amounts of sex. It is not for those who have to have everything spelled out for them right away—the fun here is in figuring out just what the Hungarian Game consists of, as American intelligence agents, a hired killer, an ultra-right-wing millionaire, and a Hungarian secret agent once thought dead all surface near a California ski resort. Who is after whom, and why? Bit by bit we learn, right up to the tough slam-bang finale in which the pieces fit together at last and Remly, the American agent, has to reach a life and death decision regarding the ginger-haired girl with whom he has been having an affair.”
US: Publishers Weekly

“A lesson to the reviewer to keep an open mind when proffered apparently typical, overlong, American ‘agency’ books. This first novel is untypical: it is gay and clever and exciting, about, on the whole, reasonably pleasant and intelligent people. At the risk of being insulting, one can fairly say it reads British.”
UK: The Times Literary Supplement, London

“One begins to suspect that these antic dirty tricksters [in The Hungarian Game] are closer to the reality of the intelligence establishment—as exposed by the Watergate hearings—than all of their fictional forebears. But all of this is an afterthought; the novel itself leaves little time for contemplation as it whips the reader along over a sea of frothy witticisms. And the color and detail of the book’s Southern California locale are magnificent, reminiscent of Raymond Chandler but brought up to date.”
US: Los Angeles Times

“The Hungarian Game by Roy Hayes (Secker & Warburg) is an exciting and highly original American espionage novel. “Mr. Hayes is a writer of mordant wit and impressive power.”
UK: Surrey & Hampshire News

Philosophy of Mathematics (Handbook of the Philosophy of Science)

One of the most striking features of mathematics is the fact that we are much more certain about the mathematical knowledge we have than about what mathematical knowledge is knowledge of. Are numbers, sets, functions and groups physical entities of some kind? Are they objectively existing objects in some non-physical, mathematical realm? Are...
