The writing team that delivered the bestselling Faithful, about the 2004 Red Sox championship season, takes listeners to the ballpark again—and to a world beyond.

Dean Evers, an elderly widower, sits in front of the television with nothing better to do than waste his leftover evenings watching baseball. It’s Rays-Mariners, and David Price is breezing through the line-up. Suddenly, in a seat a few rows up beyond the batter, Evers sees the face of someone from decades past, someone who shouldn’t be at the ballgame, shouldn’t be on the planet. And so begins a parade of people from Evers’ past, all of them occupying that seat behind home plate. Until one day Dean Evers sees someone even eerier.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Nathan Flamank | 2/13/2014

    " Though only a short story it packs a wallop as is per the norm for King and his mastery of the short story format. This is a cracking read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by beentsy | 2/7/2014

    " The feel of a cautionary tale. Live a good life, be kind to others, and don't screw people over. It will come back and bite you. Possibly in a creepy King manner. "

    " Listened to this book on cd. Not very long, about an hour, but interesting. When is Stephen King going to release another book of short stories??? I've been waiting 3 years! "
