[tight and clean, just a trace of wear at spine ends; jacket rubbed a bit along edges, slight wear at corners, a little wrinkling at both ends of spine, but all in all a nice example of this very wear-prone jacket]. Ex-Mets shortstop Eddie Keenan (.342 in the team's second consecutive pennant-winning season) becomes Warrior Iddikinnin, drafted by Earth and dispatched across the galaxy to civilize the feudal economy of the planet Melon. "Allen Kim Lang has produced a hilarious blend of baseball, exobiology, ethnology, and pure fun in this glorious, slam-bang adventure, the story of baseball's introduction to an alien planet." Unusual blending of sci-fi and sports fiction, and an unfortunate omission from McCue's generally excellent baseball fiction bibliography.
