Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator wins the Global E-Books Award for Best Horror
Layton, UT: Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator won best horror last week in the 2011 Global E-Book Awards. The Global E-book Awards is a judged contest of books published electronically in 2010 and covered 64 categories of fiction and non-fiction.
Author Karina Fabian wrote Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator at the request of Damnation Books after her story, "Wokking Dead" in The Zombie Cookbook drew fan attention. "I'm actually not into zombie fiction all that much, but the character was a lot of fun, as is the world, so when Kim (Ricahrds, the publisher) asked, how could I say no?"
Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator is Fabian's second published novel; her first, Magic, Mensa and Mayhem, won the 2010 INDIE award for best fantasy. In Neeta Lyffe, the zombie apocalypse meets reality TV as Neeta is recruited to train zombie exterminators in a reality TV show that makes Survivor look like child's play. In fact, the book opens with Eidelberg getting eaten by the undead--the price he paid for showing off and wearing homemade exterminator's outfit.
Although winning in the horror category, Neeta Lyffe is a satire, with political trends gone wild--from the government making cars like The Entitlement and The Deficit (which has faulty brakes), to the Undead Rights movement, to environmentalism embracing the Global Cooling theory. Tribute Reviews said, "Neeta is to zombies like Buffy is to vampires."
Fabian is working on the second Neeta Lyffe novel, I Left My Brains in San Francisco, and has an idea for a third book. "As long as I come up with unique ways to take out zombie pests, I'll come up with more ideas."
