Praise for William Hillyard in Hippocampus Magazine

"[Golden State 2017] is at its best, for me, when the authors treat California as a character rather than set dressing. William Hillyard does just that in “Wonder Valley” when he recounts the tale of Ned Bray and the end of Ricka McGuire 'in this nowhere corner of the Mojave.' Part anecdote, part history lesson, Hillyard transports you so thoroughly in his descriptions that you’ll need to drink a glass of water when you finish." --Hippocampus Magazine http://www.hippocampusmagazine.com/2017/08/review-golden-state-2017-the-best-new-writing-from-california-by-lisa-locascio/?utm_campaign=shareaholic&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=socialnetwork
