You're outta here
Blockade Billy is a story of quirky, eccentric baseball players on a fictional 1950's professional baseball team, and one quirky, eccentric player in particular (the title character). More a longish short story than the novella it might appear to be at first glance, you’ll have to decide whether it’s worth the $4.99 price on Kindle.
Myself, I was absorbed by this colorful tale of how a tragic, sad situation can often result when one’s talent, even a great talent, simply can’t overcome unfortunate personal circumstances. In the end, you might feel sorry for poor Billy, despite his undeniably horrific actions.
