Author B.J. Hollars recently did two interviews about his new short story collection Sightings. Both articles comment on some of the unusual characters you'll find in his stories:
"Hollars’ coming-of-age tales resonate with the heartbreak and humor of Hughes films like The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles; they also crackle with fantastical elements that made Ray Bradbury a literary legend." Read more from the Volume One interview.
"The collection of short stories represents the classic coming-of-age tales - but with some characters you might not expect." Read more from the Leader-Telegram interview.
Additionally, The Show Me Librarian reviewed Sightings, saying there is "plenty of material in these pages for both enjoyment and close reading."
