The New York Times Sunday Book Review praised Heathcock's collection of short stories, which was released earlier in March. Reviewer Donald Ray Pollock called the book "impressive," but hey, we already knew that.
Beyond writing, teaching at Boise State and throwing impressive book release parties, Heathcock was one of the judges for BW's 2010 Fiction 101 contest. Hopefully he's not too busy—or too famous—to judge again.
