Baseball Over Here

Will Success spoil Josh Wilker?Anyone who's been around here any length of time is well-aware of my man crush on Josh Wilker and Cardboard Gods. I think he's the best writer going in and around the world of baseball. That's not a qualification; just an acknowledgment that he's often not writing about baseball directly. Point is his stuff is fabulous and everyone who has read Cardboard Gods for a while has hoped that Josh would one day turn it into a book or something.
Josh Wilker is in the process of turning Cardboard Gods into a book or something:
Wilker, who works part time as an editor and proofreader in Chicago, has achieved minimal commercial success as a writer. But because of his Web site, he recently signed a contract to write a literary memoir. Tentatively called “Cardboard Gods,” it is scheduled to be published by Seven Footer Press in the spring of 2010.
Great news for Josh, and even better news for us.

Much as I love blogs, and will defend them on all fronts against the skeptics and curmudgeons, when I hear about blogs being turned into books, I tend to cringe: most blogs, like most newspapers, just don’t lend themselves to that.
Cardboard Gods is a whole ‘nother species, and I’m really excited that Josh is going to get to translate his writing there into the permanence of a book. Great news to start the week.
