Reader’s Entertainment Presents: Fred McGavran

Bizarre stories, poignant stories and a touch of poetic darkness sums up the multitude of short stories in The Butterfly Collector by Fred McGavran. Tonight, Reader’s Entertainment was able to chat with the multi-award winning author about his book, stories, writing and fans.

Short stories are a great way to capture some time to yourself and suspend your disbelief long enough to journey and adventure far away from your daily life. So curl up with a warm blanket, some chocolate covered strawberries and join us in finding out more about The Butterfly Collector.

You can find out more about the author at or read one of the short stories for free at

Here are some of the quotes we talk about during the podcast-

Gloria MacKay of Bonzer! Writes:
“A writing style both lyrical and bloody shocking. An imagination which flutters from kinky to surreal to mundane.”

Bill Pratt from World Literature Today wrote-
“The link between butterflies and dreams in poorly understood. So begins the title story of this wry and witty collection, narrated by a henpecked husband who, it turns out, has Alzheimer’s disease. So the reader has doubts, even as the story begins. It is not just unusual; it is bizarre for the narrator to be the victim of a mental condition he can’t control. But his condition isn’t pitiable; it is comical.”

Watch the video, listen to the interview and consider the world of The Butterfly Collector.
