A Greater Monster is now available in ebook format. PDF, EPUB, or MOBI (for Kindle and Nook) versions can be purchased directly from me here and the Kindle version is also available direct from Amazon here The EPUB is in the iBookstore here.

Due to the unusual graphic design in my book, it does not lend itself well to the reflowable text found in ebooks. For that reason, the PDF is actually the only one that exactly matches the print edition. I had to make some compromises in the other versions. It was a long and painful process to get them done, having fired two different ebook developers. It took me two and a half years, but I stuck with it. My third vendor finally delivered. If you are an author looking for a reasonably priced professional service, check out Aptara at aptaracorp.com. They were politely agreeable to my demanding perfectionism.

Oh, and here’s a silly interview I did a while back. It’s a game of “Would You Rather” on The Next Best Book Club blog.

I think I’d rather eat my own hand than go through that ebook design process again.

A long and thoughtful review of A Greater Monster

For anyone who has read or is considering reading my second novel A Greater Monster: a popular, critical and highly intelligent blogger-of-unusual-books has posted a long and thoughtful review and has invited discussion/posting of comments.

She begins the review by writing…

Jesus Christ. The best way I can begin this book discussion is to dare every single one of you to buy the book and read it.

And she concludes it…

I have to stop here because I could keep going for another five thousand or so words and still not cover all this book brings to the table. […] But the interpretation, as I mentioned before, is half the fun. You should read this book and not just because I dare you to read it. You should read it because it’s not like anything I have ever read before and in spite of being one of the more challenging narratives I’ve tackled for [I Read Odd Books], it remained compelling and interesting, even as I had to put it down and return to it. Highly recommended.
