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


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. 

As The Phantom of the Movies®, Joe Kane covered the genre-movie beat for The New York Daily News and authored the books The Phantom’s Ultimate Video Guide (Dell), The Phantom of the Movies’ VideoScope (Three Rivers Press) and Night of the Living Dead (Kensington). He has published the national magazine The Phantom of the Movies’ VideoScope since 1993. His fiction and non-fiction have appeared in Maxim, Penthouse, High Times, The Monster Times, The Village Voice and numerous other publications. He is also the author of Baseball’s Dream Team (Ace Books).
