Dear Reader:

It is with great pleasure that I have gained the consent of Dorothy Bryant to publish her work-in-progress, "Literary Lynching," in serial fashion at HoltUncensored.com. Below you'll see what is available so far. You can start with the Introduction, but feel free to read the chapters out of order as they are compiled.

You may download and print any portion of the book you wish. There is no charge, but if you are a teacher, librarian or other professional who plans to copy and distribute excerpts, let Dorothy know. I've created a special mailbox for her at dorothy@holtuncensored.com. Dorothy also welcomes feedback or questions, which she'll try to answer.

— Pat Holt
