Summary
  • In a Depression-era America that is woven with magic, zombies, and flying carpets, a down-and-out man escapes a local thug by joining a barnstorming minor league baseball team
  • Since the Big Bubble popped in 1929, life has changed in Enid, Oklahoma. No paying jobs at the mill, because zombies will work for nothing. The diner on Main Street is seeing hard times as well, because a lot fewer folks can afford to fly carpets in from miles away. Jack Spivey is making a few bucks playing ball with the Enid Eagles, and sometimes roughing up rival thugs for Big Stu, the guy who calls the shots in Enid. When he's assigned to "deal with" a young lady he knows he needs to get her out of Big Stu's reach. Then the House of Daniel comes to town-- a brash band of barnstormers who'll take on any team, and Jack secures a berth with them. Jack will never be the same-- nor will baseball
