My anthology, Field of Fantasies (Night Shade/Skyhorse), has garnered some great reviews. Chicago Tribune reviewer Gary Wolfe included it in his science fiction roundup, along with new work by Paolo Bacigalupi and Jonathan Carroll. It was great to be in that kind of company since I'm a major admirer of both those writers. Wolfe said of the anthology that " It's all provocative fun for both baseball and fiction fans."

And baseball and science-fiction/fantasy critic Steven Silver said that the off-season "..is the perfect time to read the stories collected in Field of Fantasies, with the long winter months stretching out ahead before the pitchers report to Spring Training and the magic begins again for
the next season. Of course, once the season is underway, it is also the perfect time to read these stories to help prolong the magic that takes place on the fields of stadiums across the country." You can read this excellent review here: https://www.sfsite.com/~silverag/field.html
And great (and knowledgeable) baseball fan and science-fiction Joe Karpierz wrote a great review recently where he said of the stories in the anthology, "Every last one of them is terrific. Even if t a baseball fan I think you'll find these stories engaging and delightful." The review appeared in several venues and is reprinted in the Amazon page for the anthology which you can find here: http://www.amazon.com/Field-Fantasies-Baseball-Stories-Supernatural/dp/1597805483/ref=sr_1_1_twi_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1414067340&sr=1-1&keywords=field+of+fantasies
