New Stephen King book is about...baseball

King Cemetery Dance Publications - an independent publisher of collectible horror and suspense books - has announced it will release Blockade Billy, a baseball book by Stephen King, sometime in mid-April.

According to a press release, King said: "I love old-school baseball, and I also love the way people who've spent a lifetime in the game talk about the game. I tried to combine those things in a story of suspense. People have asked me for years when I was going to write a baseball story. Ask no more; this is it."

Honestly, I wasn't asking, but I'm sure baseball fans everywhere will rejoice. The good news: it's a novella, so it's a lot smaller than King's last novel, the 1,000-page plus Under the Dome.

Thought he already wrote a book about baseball -- the one where a little girl gets lost in the woods and survives by channeling a Red Sox pitcher...Surely some King fan will remember the title.


It's The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon...not a very good book, if you ask me. But then, I'm not much of a baseball fan.

Compare Satellite TV

this is interesting. from scary and creepy novels to baseball?!?!
