Jason Fry and Greg Prince
Faith and Fear in Flushing made its debut on Feb. 16, 2005, the brainchild of two longtime friends and lifelong Met fans.

Greg Prince discovered the Mets when he was 6, during the magical summer of 1969. He is a Long Island-based writer, editor and communications consultant. Contact him here.

Jason Fry is a Brooklyn writer whose first memories include his mom leaping up and down cheering for Rusty Staub. Check out his other writing here.

Judge This Book By Its Cover

Faith and Fear in Flushing: An Intense Personal History of the New York Mets has gone to press and should be out before Opening Day. When you go to your popular online booksellers to¬†pre-order it (right now, presumably), you might see slightly different text, but this here is what it looks like. My thanks to Skyhorse Publishing for capturing visually Faith and, because it’s an unavoidable part of the story, Fear.

    I hope to see that Heilman face again in August and September!
    Love the cover. Absolutely love it. A picture of Johan contrasted with an open bullpen door would probably work as well.

    Yup, the picture of Aaron Heilman in the orange and blue pitching to anybody brings out the fear in all of us.
    Your middle initial, “W”. doesn't stand for Wilpon, does it?

    Yeah, you guys are fucking awesome. Thanks!
    btw, I'm boycotting the Mets until they make the playoffs.
    Gonna be extra hard not to turn on the 50″ plasma to see the new digs.
