Overview

A group of pretend adventurers suit up for a campaign called "The South Seas Treasure Game." As in the early Role Playing Games, there are Dungeon Masters, warriors, magicians, and thieves. The difference? At Dream Park, a futuristic fantasy theme park full of holographic attractions and the latest in VR technology, they play in an artificial enclosure that has been enhanced with special effects, holograms, actors, and a clever storyline. The players get as close as possible to truly living their adventure.

All's fun and games until a Park security guard is murdered, a valuable research property is stolen, and all evidence points to someone inside the game. The park's head of security, Alex Griffin, joins the game to find the killer, but finds new meaning in the games he helps keep alive.

This is a great book. It also isn't new. It shouldn't be in the new releases section

I read this book when it was first published. As an RPGer and Niven fan it was the perfect answer to two cravings. Long before I was finished I was anxiously waiting for technology to catch up to the authors' vision.

If you are a Dungeons & Dragons fan then you will love this book. Even if you're not this is a great book. The characters are delightful, the story is fun and exciting. Mystery, action, romance, fantasy...it's all here. I could read this book over and over. Come to think of it I have. Enjoy.

This is not so much about the book but the B&N website. I expected this book to be something new as the publication date was in the last fewe years, However this book is 20 plus years old and I forgot I had already read it. This is the second book I have purchased that apparently has the date the book is put on line as the publication date. That is totally misleading. And I don't want to download a sample every time I want to look at a book. Give me some accurate information next time. Yeah, like that will happen.
