Long before Brian Phillips did me the great honor of allowing me to post a thought or two on his site, I expressed my great admiration for his marvelously evocative (and often really, really funny) writing on his blog about soccer, The Run of Play.
In a turn of events that’s pretty close to being too-good-to-be-true, Brian is giving us a serial novel on the site, B. A. F. C.
— which, you’ll be pleased to know, stands for Brooklyn Asylum Football Club. Start with the Prologue
, and if you want to see a list of all posts (including some preparatory material), go here
This is going to be great. (And check out Brian’s beautiful design for the site while you’re at it.)
