Stephen King to Release Baseball-Themed Novella

Die-hard Red Sox fan Stephen King is straying from his horror comfort zone, announcing the release of a baseball-themed novella, Blockade Billy, right in time for MLB Opening Day. “People have asked me for years when I was going to write a baseball story,” King said in a statement,“Ask no more; this is it.” The novel follows William Blakely, a “player long erased from the history books,” who has a “deep, dark secret.” Hmm, it seems "straying" may have been a stretch.
