Hickey & McGee Booksellers

WE ARE FOLKS OF MODEST MEANS who love to read and so are appalled at the cost of hardback and trade paper books. Ebooks of course are cheaper, and by shopping around we can find free ebooks, but most of them are only free because the author bought their inclusion in a marketing platform. Some are good books. Most are not.

ALL BOOKS FROM H & McG ARE GOOD ONES, which come highly recommended by us. And, since our goal is to see that they get read, we either give them away or sell them for very little.

Our mission is to save avid readers about $1000 year.

By the way, ALL OUR PRICES INCLUDE TAX, and to save even more, you can buy a few or a set and therby save on shipping.

Product Details

The Gas Crisis is Book three of FOR AMERICA, a family saga that is also an incantation, a work of magic created to postpone the end of the world for at least a thousand years. The story follows the life and times of a gifted baseball pitcher born the day our bomb fell on Hiroshima.

In The Gas Crisis, Otis Otterbach faces tough decisions: whether to stay married; what sort of work and life to pursue: and whether to kill Henry Tucker, whom he blames for the fire that destroyed his house and killed Casey, his dearest friend. For years, Casey's deranged mother has held that Tucker is a Beast prophesied in the Bible. These dilemmas send Otis from California to Iowa where he enrolls in a prestigious graduate school. But panic attacks and encounters with famous writers living and dead convince him to flee in haunted desperation.
