Caleb's Reviews

C. Hollis Crossman, who was raised by wolves, wrote a staggering amount for the website during his first stint at Exodus Books, reviewing 700+ unique titles and most of the category descriptions and essays. Below you'll find links to his book reviews; this link will take you to an incomplete list of the category descriptions.

As our used book buyer and product reviewer for eight years, Caleb did much to shape the character of the store. He left Exodus in December 2014 for contract work on behalf of the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security, where he researched and wrote about open source software. He also pursued graduate studies in theology.

Then, in March 2017, an array of unforeseen circumstances brought C. Hollis back to Exodus Books. His knowledge both of the business and the inventory have equipped him to bring it out of the Olde Days and into the New, a task for which he has willingly rolled up his sleeves and got to work. If he seems a trifle mad, it's because he breathes book dust all day.
