    This short story is a tale of the surgeons working amid the chaos and carnage of Gettysburg in 1863. For Josiah Boyd, hell is 24 sleepless hours, every one of them scalpel in hand, standing under a cross in a nameless church atop a dusty hill after a pointless battle. For too many good men, this is where the world ends.

     Have you seen the movie The Sandlot? Well, that was pretty much my childhood. As a 10-year-old, it seemed the mysteries of life came alive through baseball. This is a story straight out of those glory days of playing baseball on the diamonds of Southern California, of the smell of cut grass in the outfield, of hitting impossible homers on and off the field. And of ghosts. This story is very much about the ghosts of childhood. I wrote it some years ago, mostly for my son who had passed not long before. He loved baseball, and the best year of my life was coaching his youth team.

    At 6:01 pm on April 4th, 1968, Martin Luther King was shot. He was pronounced dead at 7:05 pm at St. Joseph's Hospital in Memphis, TN after a failed attempt at open cardiac massage. He was 39 years old. King was standing on the balcony outside room 306 on the second floor of the Lorraine Motel when, in the words of biographer Taylor Branch, time on the balcony turned lethal and King's sojourn on earth went blank. But why? What kind of damage did that bullet do? Was King doomed the moment that piece of lead crashed through him? Is there any action that might have saved his life?

    What if you were driving a desolate North Dakota highway in a 100-year storm, and the only other car on the road was...wrong? “There are monsters among us. I mean this quite literally.” So begins this vivid tale of what our narrator (an old man on his death bed, once an itinerant scalpel salesman) tells us wasn't the most visceral moment of his life, but was the most horrible.
