The Curse of the Bambino:

In 1919,the Boston Red Sox sold of one of their rising young stars to the New York Yankees. That rising star just happened to be George Herman Ruth. The Babe. The Bambino. Babe Ruth.

You may have heard of him.

After the sale, Ruth went on to star as perhaps the most famous--if not the greatest--ballplayer of all time for the hated rival Yankees, who won championship after championship, while the Red Sox labored under nine decades worth of inexplicable misfortune and frustration; many came to believe the team had fallen under a curse.

It had.

On October 17, 2004, the beleaguered Red Sox were down, three games to none, to the Yankees in the American League Championship Series. The team was trailing, late in the game, facing elimination.

But a despairing and determined Red Sox fan decided to take matters into his own hands and lift the Curse -- with a little bit of dark magic, a hostage sportswriter, and the ultimate sacrifice.

"O'Reilly's Sacrifice" is a 7500-word novella: a darkly humorous--but ultimately heartwarming--story
about a fan who truly lived and died with his team.

BONUS MATERIEL:  An except from the author's story, "A Fairy for Bin Laden," a tale about a foot-high pixie who helps the CIA and Army hunt down Osama Bin Laden is included in this purchase.
