Reviewing Settlement, Mad Hatter’s Review: “Nakell has achieved something in 
Settlement…nearly impossible and would likely be disastrous if undertaken by a less skilled writer….to create a unique and ground-breaking work of literature…celebrating….[E]very human’s….primal urge to create something from nothing.” And The Review of Contemporary Fiction: “Settlement confirms Nakell’s emerging style, one that manages to be both compelling and rigorous.” He lives in Orange County, California, and teaches at Chapman University.
