A Dugout to Peace
Winter 2099

Finally cleared of treason charges, Puppy Nedick is now the Commissioner of Baseball. Vowing to return the game to its previous national glory, he becomes alarmed when there is little interest in the sport. Troubled by flagging attendance, excessively polite fans, and the poor quality of play, Puppy makes a radical decision: return the dying sport to the game of old. 

Attendance soars and suddenly gamegoers are rooting for the home team, participating in bobblehead giveaways, waving banners, and vying for autographs of the celebrity players. Baseball is becoming the national pastime again. And those who are in power are watching.

The revival of the sport unleashes dormant passions and new fears, creating questions about America’s revised history and challenging the very foundation and the basic laws of the controlling Family.

Once again a scapegoat, baseball becomes the rallying point of resistance as ordinary heroes try to bring the world together against the terrifying specter of impending nuclear annihilation, in the explosive conclusion to the Dark Depths trilogy.

Gary Morgenstein
“a riveting grand finale to this epic, thrilling journey into a terrifying future. This powerful and imaginative trilogy paints a dystopian yet hopeful world where wonderfully brave and likable characters never stop believing until they've re-lit the candles of freedom.
—Louie b. Free, host, Brainfood from the Heartland radio show 
“Willie, Mickey and the Duke meet Nietzsche, Freud and Vonnegut in this trilogy of existential angst where the spirit of baseball interrupts the pastime-Space continuum. The Boys of Summer triumph, saving mankind.
—John Quinn, longtime sports journalist and
former Sports Editor at the Philadelphia Inquirer 
“Through his writings, not only has Gary Morgenstein reinvigorated my love for baseball, but he has found hope in despair. Morgenstein shows that there is still hope in the tangible, the real and the interaction between peoples of all walks of life, even in our worst of times.
—R.C. Samo, Editor-in-Chief, FanboyNation Magazine
“a satisfying conclusion to a series destined for the Hall of Fame.
—Victor Acquista, author of The Saga and Venom series
“Morgenstein’s masterful weaving of the multi-faceted plot while paying tribute to the game he loves results in a breathtaking experience through countries, cities, and stadiums recovering from the unspeakable horrors of the past while blowing on the fleeting embers of a possible future of peace.
—Brian O’Neill, Editor-in-Chief, Sci-Fi Storm
A Dugout to Peace, the third book in the trilogy of the delightful dystopian Dark Depths series, is headed for science fiction fame…
—Kenn Weeks, Managing Editor, Wormhole Riders
Morgenstein has blended baseball and science fiction, and created a complex, nightmarish future that grabs the reader and doesn’t let go until the final pitch. This series is a home run!
—James Hamilton, Owner/Editor, Geekstronomy.com
“A classic of modern speculative fiction that also examines today’s real-world socio-political environment. Plus, baseball!!
—Ernie Paicopolos, Editor, Fenway Nation
“A book on baseball? Yes please! I very much enjoyed. Highly recommended to baseball fans like myself.
—Chris L., NetGalley Reviewer
Fiction / Mashups / Dystopian
“Through fascinating plots, colorful characters, welcome humor, and today’s politics shrewdly wrapped in the future, the three books provide a roadmap to a better world if only there were more courage, understanding, and a willingness to ignore those whose ideology is death in order to clasp hands with those whose hope is life.
—The Jewish Voice and Opinion
“tightly plotted…while at the same time continuing to deliver an intricately imagined dystopian world with unique, satirical, and often humorous quirks. Morgenstein’s humor has a way of making you grimace and laugh at the same time…a fitting conclusion to the series.
—Sport Literature Association
