D. Harlan Wilson's Primordial: An Abstraction is among Verbicide Magazine's Top 11 Books of 2014. The compiler of the list has this to say:

"Making fun of academia is great, and this is the novel I’d been waiting for because it does exactly that, but with enough intelligence that any reply is impossible. D. Harlan Wilson is one of the wittiest writers working today, and this one is as personal and smart as it is wild and funny."
