Stephen King has written some awesome books: "Carrie," "Christine," and "The Shining," to name a few.
His latest release, "Blockade Billy," is entertaining, but it won't be placed on the same literary pedestal as the above titles.
Granted "Blackade Billy" is a novella, and not a novel, but perhaps we've gotten too used to King's suspenseful tales that grip you from cover-to-cover. "Blockade Billy" doesn't do that.
"Blockade Billy" is a delight for baseball fans. It even mentions some old-time greats like Clete Boyer.
