Contact: Sol Luckman

Award-winning novelist receives major recognition as a humorist from the 11th Annual 2017 National Indie Excellence Awards!

The 11th Annual 2017 National Indie Excellence Awards recognized Sol Luckman’s wickedly lighthearted book of satire, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY: A SPIRITED GLOSSARY FOR THE LITTLE DEVIL IN YOU, as the winner in the category of Humor in this year’s competition.

This prestigious national award, based in Los Angeles, is open to all English language books in print from small, medium, university, independent and self-publishers.

The National Indie Excellence Awards ( exist to help establish independent publishing as a strong and proud facet of the publishing industry. Recognizing authors that put their heart and soul into their work, the NIEA is proud to be a champion of self-publishers and small and independent presses that go the extra mile to produce books of excellence in every aspect. Awarded since 2007, the NIEA competition is judged by independent experts from all aspects of the indie book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers, and professional copywriters.

Winners are determined based on “overall excellence of presentation in addition to the writing.” THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY is a satirical lexicon for coming to terms with modern culture (or lack thereof), politics (so-called), and life (such as it is).

In the words of author and activist Brendan D. Murphy, “THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY is a sardonic antidote to the trite and asinine slogans and catchphrases—the basic language—of Big Brother’s thought-control system. On one level, it’s light and witty comic relief, and beyond the playful satire, it is scathingly accurate! If you’re in need of some conscious, fun, and thought-provoking wordplay then you might start with THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY. Warning: reader may experience symptoms of higher consciousness, greater clarity, and general merriment.”

Taking a page from Ambrose Bierce’s satirical masterpiece, THE DEVIL’S DICTIONARY, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY reinvigorates satire to prove that—though we might not be able to change the world—we can at least have a good laugh at it. Then again, maybe laughter can transform the world!
