The writing team that delivered the bestselling Faithful, about the 2004 Red Sox championship season, takes readers to the ballpark again, and to a world beyond, in an eBook original to be published on August 21, 2012.
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’s past, all of them occupying that seat behind home plate. Until one day Dean Evers sees someone even eerier….

A Face in the Crowd
I didn't realize that when I bought this short story, not book, that half of the 243 pages are nothing more than previews of other Stephen King books. What a waste of money. The story itself...meh!
Well Worth the Wait
When Stephen King first mentioned the concept for this story in Faithful, I found myself intrigued, and wondered when or if he would ever get around to writing it. Well, the wait is over, and it was well worth it.
While short in length, the story makes up for it in content as King spins a yarn about loss, regret, and the horror that can be found between the pitches of a televised baseball game. But be warned, after reading this spooky little yarn you may find yourself watching baseball differently for a while.
This story again reinforces the fact that King is not only a master storyteller, but a baseball fanatic too. And that by no means is a bad thing.
