Blockade Billy


Now and again, between his best-selling horror novels, King likes to try his hand at different genres, usually in shorter formats published by small presses. He did it in 2005 with a pulp yarn called The Colorado Kid from Hard Case Crime, and now he does it again with a baseball novella from Cemetery Dance. The story of Blockade Billy, whose brief career in the big leagues was banished from the record books, is part realistic fiction and part fable, evoking Mark Harris’ baseball novels, the work of W. P. Kinsella, and George Plimpton’s The Curious Case of Sid Finch (1987).
