A writer of Alternate History and Science Fiction, Hanson Hovell Holladay creates characters and scenarios based on factual events and individuals of the Second World War and Soviet Space Programme. As a teenager, Holladay desired a career in the Film Industry, having written and produced numerous short “backyard” B flicks. An introduction to Creative Writing in 2007, led to his ultimate passion of becoming a writer of fiction.
In possession of a lyrical, yet realistic writing style, the works of Holladay combine the facts and theories of mainstream history with those of Conspiracy, concocting the ideal scenarios of late night radio for those who see beyond the lens of textbook history. Holladay holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing for Entertainment from Full Sail University, where he was distinguished for his exceptional creativity with three Course Director Awards and the Advanced Achievement Award. His intimate knowledge of twentieth century warfare and attention to historical detail lend an authenticity to his work.
Holladay’s works have been published in both electronic magazines and anthologies in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Currently, he is in the process of completing his first novel for publication, titled “Grozny,” a story of interstellar terror buried beneath the foundation of a Stalinist social experiment.
