Publisher's Summary

"We were lucky to make it out of Shreveport alive on that early spring day in 1917."

"At noon, before the first game of our doubleheader, my All Nations team was taking batting practice, and as usual, I was studying the crowd. The people fascinated me: all those life stories that I'd never get a chance to hear, like that old colored man smiling and singing to himself next to his stern, frowning wife in her flowered hat, or the two white women with their cigarettes and exposed ankles. I was amazed by it all, though we never stayed in a place long enough to learn about anyone or anything more than the game and its players."

A story of the first truly integrated baseball team, decades before Jackie Robinson, set during the early years of World War I. Magic, miracles, and more...

A Miracle in Shreveport was first published in Electric Velocipede, May 2007, and it also garnered an Honorable Mention in the Year's Best Science Fiction vol. 25.

This story is part of the novel The All Nations Team.
