A Greater Monster, has won a Gold Medal as an “Outstanding Book of the Year” in the 2012 Independent Publisher Book Awards. So say the awards: “These medalists were chosen from our regular entries for having the courage and creativity necessary to take chances, break new ground, and bring about change, not only to the world of publishing, but to our society.”

There were only 10 winners in different categories out of more than 5000 entries.

The competition judges described A Greater Monster as: “Imaginative, explosive and poetic. A real trip!” “A brain-singeing look at humanity at its strangest.” “Dark and edgy, like a Blade Runner for English majors.”
