His second book, The Metaphysics of Media: Toward an End to Postmodern Cynicism and the Construction of a Virtuous Reality, received the Lewis Mumford Award for Outstanding Scholarship in the Ecology of Technics in 2010.
Fallon's third book, Cultural Defiance/Cultural Deviance, is a collection of critical essays about media, culture, politics, religion, and economics that goes out of its way to push, prod, and pummel the conventions of culture.
