on all the "Best of 2007" lists he's been making. The Providence Journal and The Cleveland Plain Dealer have this to say about Nilsen's Dogs and Water:
A nameless man embarks on a lonely odyssey through a desolate, temperamental world. This haunting and episodic story has been permanently lodged in my psyche since I read it last spring. Nilsen is a comics poet, writing a story that perfectly captures moods, feelings and metaphors. Do read this man.Don't Go Where I Can't Follow was on the LA Times Best Books of 2007 list, and The End made the Pennsylvania Patriot News best of list.
Nilsen has also made the best of lists of a number of blogs.
