My new book, "Deadly Fantasy: A Baseball Story," is now available for purchase on Amazon.com and for Kindle. With a cover illustration created, as always, by our Diana Any Stokely, this book is a must for any baseball fan, fantasy baseball player, or fiction lover.
Over 33 million people in the United States participate in fantasy baseball and/or football leagues; these leagues are a two billion dollar per year industry. Some take their participation in such fantasy leagues more seriously than others, suspending reality as they try to fulfill their dreams of serving as a major league owner or General Manager. For Jeff Goldstein, however, this is not just a game; participation in the league takes over his life. His obsession with winning his fantasy league, and its $150,000 prize, consumes his every thought and threatens his relationship with his girlfriend, his friends, and his job. How far will Jeff go in his desire to win the league? What actions will he take, or ask others to take, as he struggles to separate fantasy from reality?
Some of the early reviews follow:
“As a sports attorney I work regularly with athletes who are passionate about their sport. Jeff Goldstein takes this passion to a whole new and disturbing level. If there really were a fantasy league player like Jeff, then I would fear for the safety of my clients.” - Jordan S. Solomon, Esq.
“Who would ever think a game amongst friends would turn to deception and murder? … Andrew Wolfenson takes loyalty and the American Pastime where they’ve never been before by playing Fantasy League Baseball with a life and death scoreboard, unquestionably making this book a home run.” - Jon D’Amore, Author, “The Boss Always Sits In the Back”
“Andrew Wolfenson’s Deadly Fantasy combines the fixations of Coover’s Universal Baseball Association with the suspense of Alfred Hitchcock in a taut tale of obsession and insanity.” - Ron Kaplan, Author, “501 Baseball Books Fans Must Read Before They Die”
