Stephen King’s novella, Blockade Billy, is now available on audio—along with the bonus story “Morality”—for only $14.99!Even the most diehard baseball fans don’t know the true story of William “Blockade Billy” Blakely. He may have been the greatest player the game has ever seen, but today no one remembers his name. He was the first—and only—player to have his existence completely removed from the record books. Even his team is long forgotten, barely a footnote in the game’s history.     Every effort was made to erase any evidence that William Blakely played professional baseball, and with good reason. Blockade Billy had a secret darker than any pill or injection that might cause a scandal in sports today. His secret was much, much worse…and only Stephen King, the most gifted storyteller of our age, can reveal the truth to the world, once and for all.

The audio book was really neat. I imagine had I read the actual novella, I would have been slightly bored and disappointed. But the narrator made things interesting on the audio.

3.0 Blockade Billy
This is a set of two short story/novellas, one being the title yarn and another called Morality.The first, Blockade Billy, isn't much of a story, but may have great appeal to baseball diehards, like King himself. That's the staying power it had for me- it wasn't a very good horror story but I enjoye...
