Since the Big Bubble popped in 1929, life in the United
States hasn't been the same. Hotshot wizards will tell you
nothing's really changed, but then again, hotshot wizards
aren't looking for honest work in Enid, Oklahoma. No
paying jobs at the mill, because zombies will work for
nothing. The diner on Main Street is seeing hard times as
well, because a lot fewer folks can afford to fly carpets
in from miles away.
Jack Spivey's just another down-and-out trying to stay
alive, doing a little of this and a little of that.
Sometimes that means making a few bucks playing ball with
the Enid Eagles, against teams from as many as two
counties away. And somethimes it means roughing up rival
thugs for Big Stu, the guy who calls the shots in Enid.
But one day Jack knocks on the door of the person he's
supposed to "deal with"--and realizes that he's not going
to do any such thing to the young lady who answers. This
means he needs to get out of the reach of Big Stu, who
didn't get to where he is by letting defiance go
Then the House of Daniel comes to town--a brash band of
barnstormers who'll take on any team, and whose antics
never fail to entertain. Against the odds Jack secures a
berth with them. Now they're off to tour an America that's
as shot through with magic as it is dead broke. Jack will
never be the same--nor will baseball.
