WILD AND OUTSIDE

It had to happen.... A few hundred years from now, the Mets won two pennants in a row. Eddie Keenan, star player, is then shipped off to the insterspace world-island, Melon, both to set up an old interplanetary ball club and to smuggle in some horse sperm in a Sta-Kold capsule. While spreading the word about baseball, Eddie treks with some friends up the Grand Canal, through Limbo Swamp, to the Inland Sea. He also meets his real fathers now 350 years old, and discovers his own origins through refrigerated sperm. Not only is the story Jumbled, it is written in richly self-indulgent clusters of language running from Runyon to early Elizabethan. Schizoid sci-fi.
