Today we are happy to announce the news of past contributor
BJ Hollars! BJ’s collection of nonfiction stories titled Harbingers was just published early this month by Bull City Press. The
tryptic of essays explores the possible harbingers present in the lives of atomic
bomb scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, civil rights activist Medgar Evers and
the author himself. Hollars notices that while a harbinger is defined as a sign
of something to come, it is often best interpreted in the aftermath.
