Having barely escaped the fiendish clutches of vampire vixen Alegria Pérez, teenage hemophiliac, half-vampire Joshua Puig and his high school cohorts grapple to survive the final 24-hour period of life-altering events thrust upon them by the cyclical--and deadly--arrival of the cobalt moon. Joshua and his passive band of half-vampires struggle to stay one step ahead of the revenge-consumed Alegría and the opposing, blood-lusting sect of half-vampires, who require the "Docile" blood strain in order to become full vampires. Intent on fulfilling their humanity-embracing ways, Joshua and his fellow half-vampires flee their home base of Miami in 1968 to a secret hiding locale in northern Florida. But with ulterior designs on facilitating the bloody rite of passage for her son, Raúl, and other "Hostile" half-vampire underlings, Alegría defies the supernatural underworld's highest authority and does everything in her power to hunt down the escaping teens, forcing a final, climactic showdown.

Baseball exploded in Evansville after the Civil War. Early clubs like the Resolutes, Blues, Brewers, Hoosiers and Blackbirds played, built ballparks, struggled financially and suffered scandals until the early 1900s. A near tragic event fueled the 1915 construction of Bosse Field, now the third-oldest professional ballpark in operation and the host to Major League Spring Training and the filming of A League of Their Own. After World War II, college baseball returned after lying dormant since the 1920s. In the late 1960s, a local entrepreneur attempted to build a third major league. When he failed, the city ascended to the minor leagues' highest level. Join sportswriter and Evansville native Kevin Wirthwein as he recounts baseball's illustrious history in the River City.

With these words, President Clinton contributed to Long Island University's three-day celebration of that momentous event in American history when Robinson became the first African American to play major league baseball. This new book includes presentations from that celebration, especially chosen for their fresh perspectives and illuminating insights. A heady mix of journalism, scholarship, and memory offers a presentation that far transcends the retelling of just another sports story. Readers get a true sense of the social conditions prior to Robinson's arrival in the major leagues and the ripple effect his breakthrough had on the nation. Anecdotes enliven the story and offer more than the usual "larger than life" portrait of Robinson. A melange of contributors from the sports world, academia, and journalism, some of Robinson's contemporaries, Dodger fans, and historians of the era, all sharing a passion for baseball, reflect on issues of sports, race, and the dramatic transformation of the American social and political scene in the last fifty years. In addition to the editors, the list of authors includes Peter Golenbock, one of America's preeminent sports biographers and author of Bums: The Brooklyn Dodgers, 1947-1957, Tom Hawkins, the first African-American to star in basketball at Notre Dame and currently Vice-President for Communications of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bill Mardo a former writer for the New York Daily Worker, Roger Rosenblatt, teacher at the Southampton Campus of Long Island University, and author of numerous articles, plays, and books, Peter Williams, author of a study of sports myth, The Sports Immortals, and Samuel Regalado, author of Viva Baseball!: LatinMajor Leaguers and Their Special Hunger.
