Our editors are pleased to present the winner of the inaugural Colony Collapse Press Novella prize: The Complex by Ian Randall Wilson.

The Complex is the tale of one man's Kafkaesque struggle to navigate an impossible bureaucracy in an earthquake-riddled, post-apocalyptic California. The author's careful satire recalls Don Delillo or Joseph Heller and lives in the blurry borders between the absurd, the real, and the surreal.

"In Ian Wilson’s The Complex, unceasing aftershocks rattle buildings in Los Angeles, and the tremors extend to surprising places: connections among people come unglued, reason jangles, the tenuous logic that holds civilization together clatters and squeals. This dark and absurdly funny homage to Kafka’s The Castle made me laugh out loud a dozen times." --Robert Boswell
