Detours are amazing creatures. A detour can cut your existence short or it can lead you down a long road that will linger far into the distant reaches of eternity. These unexpected tangents, which people stumble across nearly every day, will haunt you in a frighteningly familiar fashion. Wander into a laundromat and find a kind of a time machine. Indulge yourself in a particularly nasty game of baseball. Hitch a ride on a freight train with the piggyback man, entomb yourself in a trailer walled with books, take a ride on a bus that is going nowhere fast, or just lean over an empty ocean and wait for the first mermaid you see. Detour around an overturned trailer of chickens and find a chance to do it all over again. Take a taxi ride with a very hungry passenger, or just walk in the park and watch a juggler balancing severed heads. Reality will take you only so far. After that, there is nothing to rely on but faith and fear. I offer you 18 eerie tales of fantasy, horror, science fiction, and all around strangeness that will take you to the edge of the map and then nudge you just a little bit further. 1.

A Dan Shaw Thriller In this enticing thriller, Dan Shaw risks the deep waters of wealth, deception, and murder off the Gold Coast to see justice done for a beautiful woman. Dan Shaw has been practicing law only four months and he’s already burned out. Add the fact that he’s just lost his longtime girlfriend and the cops are scouring his dubious past, and it’s no wonder that Shaw decides to set sail for the summer and get away from it all. But even alone in the middle of the sea, trouble finds him - in the enticing form of Katherine Adams. When Shaw hauls her out of the ocean, she’s naked, nearly drowned, and has little memory as to how she got that way. But the real story is even more twisted. Her husband, Cesar Cardinal, is a diplomat, a playboy, and a high-stakes gambler. He’s feigned his wife’s suicide at sea and taken their young son to a heavily armed compound in the Dominican Republic, where U.S. law can’t touch him. But that’s not going to stop Shaw, who can’t deny his feelings for Katherine. From Bell Harbor to Santo Domingo, he’s baiting a trap with his own life… and there’s no telling what he’ll catch. Ron Faust is the author of 14 previous thrillers. He has been praised for his "rare and remarkable talent" (Los Angeles Times), and several of his books have been optioned for films. Before he began writing, he played professional baseball and worked at newspapers in Colorado Springs, San Diego, and Key West. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kaleo Griffith.

Why does a curveball curve? What is a &#8220;can of corn&#8221;? Why was Joe DiMaggio called the &#8220;Yankee Clipper&#8221;? Who wrote &#8220;Take Me Out to the Ball Game&#8221;? How many times did Ty Cobb steal home? In this reissue of Baseball Miscellany, the fascinating history and lore of our national pastime is finally revealed! For example, the reason a curveball curves is that its spin drags a layer of air across one surface of the ball faster than it does across the opposite surface. A &#8220;can of corn&#8221; is slang for an easy-to-catch fly ball, the term originating from a general store clerk reaching up and dropping a can from a high shelf. Sportswriters dubbed Joe DiMaggio the &#8220;Yankee Clipper&#8221; because he glided about the outfield with beauty and grace, like a clipper ship on the ocean. The lyrics to &#8220;Take Me Out to the Ball Game&#8221; were written in 1908 by vaudeville star Jack Norworth, who, while riding the subway, was inspired by a sign that said &#8220;Baseball Today&#8212;Polo Grounds.&#8221; And the great Ty Cobb stole home a whopping fifty-four times&#8212;fifty more than the career leader in total stolen bases, Rickey Henderson. Packed with all manner of delightful surprises, beautiful illustrations and photographs, and delicious nuggets of information, Baseball Miscellany demystifies the origins and customs of America&#8217;s most celebrated game. From spring training through the World Series, you&#8217;ll be entertained with fun, little-known facts. Why do baseball players wear stirrup socks? Who invented the catcher&#8217;s mask? What major-league team passed up on signing eighteen-year-old Willie Mays in 1949?
