This is a Damon Runyon-esque tale of courteous guys, bulletproof dolls, and the fedora-clad spacemen that bring them together. The story was written by the author as a tribute to Damon Runyon, for the seventy-fifth anniversary of its death. It tries to use Runyon's delightful, distinctive prose style and the post-Prohibition New York atmosphere in a sci-fi setting.

Well this one gave me a chuckle because of the way it's written. You need to imagine the narrator as having one of those depressions era gangster accents. The story is full of depression era slang.
