Charles Johnson Publishes New Short Story Collection

Charles Johnson, University of Washington professor emeritus of English and award-winning author, has released a new book of short stories, his fourth.

The dozen stories in Night Hawks, published this month by Scribner, range from realism to light science fiction, myth and his own personal experiences, laced gently with humor and philosophy.

Johnson, the S. Wilson and Grace M. Pollock Endowed Professor of Writing, is author of 23 books over a five-decade career and the recipient of numerous awards, including the 1990 National Book Award for his novel “Middle Passage.”

You can find an interview with Johnson about Night Hawks and about his work more generally over on the UW News website.
