Overview

In a world where ZOMBIES control banks and governments, only one young man sees the way things are and emerges from the CHAOS and destruction: GUY BOY MAN. While he tries to end human suffering worldwide and in his high school, Guy Boy Man meets a cute PINK-HAIRED girl named BABY DOLL15 who has a UNICORN that follows her everywhere. An EPIC ROMANCE begins, but forces BEYOND THEIR CONTROL are intent on keeping the young couple apart. One of those FORCES may—or may not be!—Guy Boy Man’s closest friend, a handsome African-American NINJA named SWEETIE HONEY; another could be four EXOTICALLY BEAUTIFUL, genetically engineered and behaviourally modified EASTERN EUROPEAN girls; yet another, the principal of their HIGH SCHOOL . . . not to mention an impending standardized test known as the ZOMBIE ACCEPTANCE TEST! Will Guy Boy Man find a way to be with Baby Doll15 in a WORLD WHERE EVERYONE IS DOOMED to become either zombies or zombie food??!!

Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies is part Napoleon Dynamite, part The Matrix, and ALL AWESOME. It’s the first book in the How To End Human Suffering series.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In a world controlled by zombies, one fantastically rich 16-year-old kid sets out to end human suffering. Guy Boy Man, the (Internet) pirate of the title and self-appointed savior of the world, is determined to eliminate evil forces, among them violent vegetarians, wealthy communist librarians, fields ripe with writhing babies, and, of course, zombies. In his quest, Guy teams up with handsome Ninja Sweetie Honey. Enter BabyDoll15, a cute, pink-haired girl with a unicorn, and the competition is on. Can Guy Boy Man find love in a world where everyone is doomed to become either zombies or zombie food, depending on their score on the ZAT (Zombie Aptitude Test)? Sounds confusing, and it is—right from the first sentence, which, incidentally, is three pages long. Are these events really happening, or are they just in the head of Guy Boy Man, possibly the least reliable narrator since Humbert Humbert? VERDICT Chaotic, crazy, and undeniably captivating, NVPFZ is the quirkiest take yet on the zombie genre. First in a series that is sure to be a smash with the gaming generation.
