Former Syfy Channel PR guy Gary Morgenstein's (the mad PR genius behind Sharknado) new sci fi baseball novel A Mound Over Hell
is set in 2098 following America's defeat by Islam in World War Three as baseball begins its final season ever. The first in The Dark Depths
series, its been called "1984 Meets Shoeless Joe."
America, now surrounded, has created a society based on love and ethics, led by Grandma, head of The Family. All acts of patriotism, from flying the flag to singing the National Anthem, are illegal. Social media has been banned under the Anti-Narcissism Laws. Religion, associated with Islam, is also illegal. Banks, lawyers, psychologists and the entertainment industry were banned by the Anti-Parasite Laws I and II.
As A Mound Over Hell
opens, baseball, a sport now identified with treason, plays in crumbling Amazon Stadium (formerly Yankee Stadium). Just as the sport is about dead, everything changes. Infused by the miraculous appearance of great players from the past, baseball regains its popularity, only to become a pawn between those who want peace and those who want another war.
