Ireland, where the dead roam and shadows conspire to herd them, a grim and twisted tale unfurls.
Brendan and Eoin, transient degenerates, revel in a life of debauchery amidst a corrupted countryside. But their existence has grown stale, and the thrill of the macabre no longer suffices. Eoin yearns for an escape from this grim reality, while Brendan seeks something more exhilarating.
Fate intervenes when the enigmatic Lillian crosses their path. A woman unyielding to their twisted charms, she joins their cadre, her motives concealed.
Bound together by a twisted fate, the small group embarks on a journey along lonely roads, heading towards the next town. With each step, memories of the sins committed to survive in this corrupted world resurface, haunting them.
As the three travel through the countryside, they confront their inner demons and the malevolence that lurks within the dead land.

“I’ve never experienced such short stories that made such a lasting impact. In a few short pages, the content and the characters stay with you. The supernatural and paranormal twists add a depth to these stories without detracting from the practical realism in the premise. Intelligently written, can’t wait to see what else B.C. Hollywood has up his sleeve.” – Goodreads Review
“I’ll try not to have any spoilers here because Mr. Hollywood’s twisty, surprising stories are too good to spoil. They should be savored by each reader who comes to them. But I will say that there’s always a sting in the tail, somewhere.” – Amazon Review

Dogcatcher: A Short Story
In Dogcatcher: A Short Story, Samuel Legge, the village dog-catcher, has received news that has cast a shadow over his future. It couldn’t have happened at a worse time because a figure from his past now threatens the person he holds dearest. But Sam is nothing if not resourceful, and he’s not the sort of man you want to back into a corner. Don’t count the old dog out just yet!
“This is a beautiful and fully-realized short from B.C. Hollywood. The titular character, Sam Legge, faces the usual challenges of fatherhood: trying to communicate with his maturing daughter and dealing with his own advancing age and mortality. But Sam has more than the usual challenge when a specter from his past returns and threatens more than his daughter’s heart. Sam’s method of dealing with these challenges is as resourceful it is gruesome.” – Amazon Review
