A New Novel from Joe Kane, VIDEOSCOPE’s The Phantom of the Movies

Cover8---Bright

Set in the American Heartland of 1927, The Saga of Six-Finger Pike follows the phenomenal but danger-fraught fortunes of Ezra Pike, an unschooled teenage farmboy whose double thumbs enable him to throw a nearly unhittable pitch and take the baseball world by storm as star hurler of the Midland Midlanders, the mighty New York Yankees’ Double-A club. Does diamond immortality loom on the horizon? Or do fate—and a bigger-than-life barnstorming Babe Ruth—have other plans in store? 

John R. Tunis meets David Lynch in The Twilight Zone in this swiftly paced seriocomic baseball novel, where rules are made to be broken.

Wow. We were… upset, yesterday. “Please. Fucking block me.”

SHE CAN BLOCK ME AT HER EARLIEST CONVENIENCE, I AM NOT ASHAMED OF ANYTHING I WROTE OR THOUGHT.

Please. Tell her. Her name’s [XXXXX]? Tell her she can block me. She never writes anything interesting on the twitstream anyway.

But look, buddy, [    ]— saying to me I have an “investment in white supremacy,” is quite the insult. If a man said that to me? I’d fucking punch him. If a woman said it to me, I’d cross the room and tell the computer I am highly offended, and she better understand that the insult she casually leveled against me is really…

…fucking

offensive.

I am Simon Drax. You casually call me a white supremacist? I will fucking flip out.

She doesn’t know me, she doesn’t know my family. Many POC are included in my family. Please forward this email to her, and PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO HER VERBATIUM, PLEASE

AND I FUCKING HATE THAT ABREVIATION “POC,” IT’S NOT EVEN REAL. EVERYONE HAS COLOR. IF WE’RE EVER GOING TO MOVE FORWARD AS A SOCIETY, WE HAVE HAVE TO LET THAT SHIT GO.

People of color: white guy, black guy, yellow guy, red guy, We have to let that shit go.

Good fucking happy Monday.

Which is at least a half-decent imitation of their earlier, better songs.
