Fred McGavran in The Short Review

The Short Review has great things to say about Fred McGavran’s prize-winning short story collection The Butterfly Collector: “McGavran’s debut collection proves him to be an accomplished storyteller. I will go so far as to say he is a master “getter-inside-of-characters’ psyches”; whether this comes from his innate sense of story, his training in creative writing, or his legal practice, I could not say, but most of the stories have a natural ease about them, and an insightful understanding of what makes people tick.” The Short Review also interviewed Fred, and he talks about what inspires him and how this collection came together.
