Print > Cary Neeper given silver medal at Nautilus Book Awards for second novel

Cary Neeper, a longtime resident of Los Alamos, was named a silver medalist at the 2013 Nautilus Book Awards for her second title, “The Webs of Varok.”
Released in December 2012, “The Webs of Varok” follows the human and alien cast from Neeper’s 1975 first-contact novel, “A Place Beyond Man” as they leave a troubled 21st century Earth for the promise of stability on a veiled moon of Jupiter.
“The Webs of Varok” is the story of a mixed family gambling their trust in each other against the power of greed.
Their challenges and progress on an alien world threatened by overgrowth portray in fiction some positive solutions to our current dilemmas here on Earth,” Neeper said.
The Nautilus Awards recognize print books of all genres that inspire readers to explore new possibilities for positive change.
According to their website, “Gold and Silver awards are given to print books of exceptional merit that make a literary and heartfelt contribution to spiritual growth, conscious living, high-level wellness, green values, responsible leadership and positive social change, as well as to the worlds of art, creativity, and inspiration.”
Neeper’s book was recognized in the mid-grade/teen fiction category.
