Congratulations to Doc Lucky!
Jeffrey Keen, President and CEO of JPX Media Group, said 2012 The International Book Award’s contest yielded thousands of entries from authors and publishers around the world, which were then narrowed down to the final results. Also, with the 2012 National Indie Excellence Award, thousands of entries were submitted, more so than in previous years. We are proud of The Immune garnering such prestigious awards within the first year of its release.
Also, The Immune is a finalist for the prestigious ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards. Winners will be announced on June 23rd in California at the American Library Association convention.
Jacquie Krah of http://www.Lytherus.com recently reviewed Doc Lucky’s award winning work and said, “The story began as amusing and quickly evolved to brilliant with a libertarian-themed undercurrent that never took away from the entertainment value. If I had my way, The Immune would be taught in political science and literature classes next to allusion-filled classics like Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies.”
We are thrilled and excited to announce that Doc Lucky Meisenheimer’s science fiction thriller, THE IMMUNE, has been chosen as a finalist for the prestigious ForeWord Book of the Year Awards!! This is truly an amazing accomplishment for a new author’s debut.

“Five stars! I sincerely recommend purchasing The Immune. It is a story that will engage your imagination and, more than likely, give many a few major concerns about today’s government. Doc Lucky Meisenheimer is a multi-taletned individual and I look forward to reading more of his stories in the future.”- Huntress Reviews

The reviews for Doc Lucky’s sci fi thriller, THE IMMUNE, keep pouring in from book reviewers and bloggers across the world.
Here are some recent quotes from a variety of book reviews:
“Meisenheimer uses his extensive knowledge as a champion swimmer and his medical background to delve deeply into the world he creates, bringing the characters and the threats to life. His style of writing moves quickly, but doesn’t lack in details which enable the reader to vividly see the events as they unfold. Keeping you on edge and just when you think you’ve got it figured out, he swings in with a twist and throws you right back to the edge of your seat.”
– Amanda Perkins, The Urban Bachelorette
“The Immune is a riveting read of science fiction, highly recommended.”
– James Cox, Midwest Book Review
“The Immune reads like a movie that keeps you guessing until the very end. It could easily be a huge, blockbuster, big screen thriller someday. If you are going to pursue liberty, you might as well have fun doing it. That’s what reading The Immune is all about. I can’t recommend it enough. Add it to your reading list now. You’ll thank me later.”
– Marc Gallagher, Liberty Maven
“The Immune pulls no punches in its critical assessment of the zealous overregulation of domestic and world governing organizations…every moment is a calculated thrill-ride, rife with unexpected stops and drops. …Meisenheimer earns his wings by telling a great story and spreading the message of personal liberty in earnest. The Immune emerges as a worthy read to audiences of varied stripes, and I suspect there it shall remain.”
– Alex Wall, WeMerge Magazine
“This cheeky, irreverent, delightfully un-p.c. story should be a must-read for every person in this country who doesn’t appreciate the liberty they so blithely enjoy every day. … It’s a deliciously wicked commentary on our current political culture gone world-power-mad.”
– R. Bartel, Atlas Distribution Blog
