Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

Just Reviewed “Waiting for Teddy Williams” at SBR

Folks, if you love baseball, or you love coming of age novels, or you just plain love good writing, you need to read Howard Frank Mosher’s WAITING FOR TEDDY WILLIAMS.  This is a book that has it all — memorable characters, some humor here and there, and a plot that, while quite fabulous in every sense, can’t help but make you root for the underdog (or in the case of the Boston Red Sox historically-speaking, underdogs).

This is just an excellent novel about a kid from rural Vermont, his love for baseball, and his wish to play for the Red Sox one day.  Outstanding on every level.

But don’t take it from this little capsule review; go read my longer review already!
