Lest a Monster You Become

Lest a Monster you become - Cover

Beware he who fights monsters,
lest a monster you become.
As you stare into the abyss,
the abyss stares back at you.

- Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good & Evil

Lest a Monster you Become is Ben A Albon's debut novel: a grotesque coming of age story that blends romance, horror and surrealism. It draws on existential and Jungian themes common to Otaku culture and blends them with a black humour and bleak realism that is quintessentially British, to create a world that is neither here nor there.
