Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Craig Wasson enhances the narration of this short story featuring just a handful of characters mostly through his use of incredulous tones. Wasson takes full advantage of all the characters, most of whom appear briefly yet are intrinsic to the story. Those who enjoy period fiction, baseball, and the supernatural will be left satisfied, like fans walking out of a stadium after a well-played game.” AudioFile
