Yippee IPPY

Backword Books author (and founding member) Henry Baum was awarded a gold “IPPY” (Independent Publisher award) in visionary fiction for his novel The American Book of the Dead.

Some praise for the novel:

“If you read Lolita or A Clockwork Orange without drop-kicking the book out into the garden on a rainy day, this novel is for you.” Tessa Dick, author of The Owl in Daylight, and widow of Philip K. Dick

“Reminiscent of Philip K. Dick and Haruki Murakami, a book that boldly explores the future and defies genre.” Largehearted Boy

“Really great – reminds me of Philip K. Dick and Kurt Vonnegut.” Scott Booker, Manager of the Flaming Lips

Congratulations, Henry.
