About your host
Formerly a sports and features editor for a weekly New Jersey publication, I’m also a freelance writer, specializing in book reviews — primarily baseball-related — as well as pop culture. My work has appeared in such publications as Baseball America, New York Sportscene, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Mental Floss, ForeWord Magazine, January Magazine, E Magazine, Irish America, and American Book Review, among others.
I have also served as editor for the Society for American Baseball Research’s Bibliography Committee Newsletter, now sadly defunct.
Most of the articles on this blog are my own, with other items and reviews of note included for your interest and reference.
My first book — 501 Baseball Books Fans Must Read before They Die — was published by the University of Nebraska Press in the spring of 2013. The second — The Jewish Olympics: The History of the Maccabiah Games — came out two years later via Sports Publishing, an imprint of Skyhorse. Continuing the two-year cycle, Hank Greenberg in 1938: Hatred and Home Runs in the Shadow of War, also from Sports Publishing, is scheduled for release in April 2017.
