By Karina Fabian
Sisters Ann, Tommie and Rita are part of a classified mission to explore an alien ship that has crash landed on an asteroid three billion miles from earth. Humanity’s first contact with beings from beyond the solar system is bound to unlock the mystery of life in the universe, but the crew have their own secrets; hidden fears, desires, horrible sins – and a mission to kill.

Karina Fabian is an award-winning author of science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy, usually in some kind of crazy mix that lets her quirky humor and view of the world show. That’s why I let her narrate my DragonEye cases for stories. She’s got a knack for irony and approves of my puns, plus, she understands my unique dragon nature. What more can you ask for in an SFF author and humorist?
Much as I’d like to retain her as my personal scribe – because believe me, I have plenty of adventures to share – she’s got her own stories to write. Personally, I’m no fan of zombies, which to a dragon is equivalent to reading about the leftovers coming back to life, but I have to admit, her Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator books are pretty funny. My partner, Sister Grace, and I like her Catholic science fiction stories more. Nuns in space doing dangerous rescue missions as their way to serve God? Great stuff. She’s also written science fiction about a virtual reality world and a man caught in a black hole.
Karina doesn’t just write novels, however. Her fantasy and science fiction stories – many starring Yours Truly – have been published in online and print magazines and anthologies. She’s won multiple awards until she stopped entering contests because she didn’t see the point. She’d rather have readers than trophies. (As a collector of baubles, I can’t really relate, but hey, I’m a dragon.)
When she’s not talking to me or writing down her other stories, she works at Newscycle Solutions as a marketing communications specialist. She’s married to Rob Fabian, President of Rocket Crafters, a retired AF colonel, and her go-to man for ideas or help with a story. Great guy! They have four kids who love me. Right now, they have two dogs that I’ve been asked not to eat.
This author is as funny as Robert Asprin on one of his good days. Who else could come up with a twelve foot Sam Spade named Vern and get away with it so brilliantly?

With the dexterity of an Isaac Asimov or Larry Niven, Karina makes the science and speculative science of the story accessible, deftly weaving it into the fabric of the story.

Karina Fabian doesn’t stop with well-crafted worlds. She fills those worlds with multifaceted characters and problems to solve, and deftly draws in the spiritual dimension of their struggles.
