An Essay, and a Review

Last week, The Orlandoan was gracious enough to publish a series of my essays analyzing the depiction of Orlando in three young adult novels. The essay was occasioned by the release of John Green’s Paper Towns (which takes place in Orlando). I haven’t seen the movie yet, so feel free to post comments about it if you have…I love The Orlandoan, though, and was excited to be a part of their site.

Also last week, Entropy Magazine reviewed my book The Things I Don’t See, and critic Lavinia Ludlow had some great things to say about it. Follow the link, and read more! Here’s a brief excerpt:

This novel is a prime example of how our individual fears and insecurities might possibly be more mutilating than reality itself, and how we unintentionally punish those closest to us for fear of them making the same mistakes, especially children. A quick and well-written read, Nathan Holic’s The Things I Don’t See is an extraordinary piece of work.
