The Butterfly Collector
The Butterfly Collector is full of people you know: a beautician, a lawyer, a man with Alzheimer's who takes his first nightcap at 3:00 p.m. But each of these thoroughly knowable protagonists is faced with a situation that causes them to become extraordinary. In these stories, Fred McGavran is both author and investigator, out to prove that every person has at least one really good story to tell.
Fred McGavran won the 2007 Writers Digest Short Story Contest in the horror category, the 2004 John Reid/Tom Howard Contest, and the 2003 Raymond Carver Award from Humboldt State University.
