A group of young tech-savvy hackers breaks into Long Island's Gameland, a formerly militarized wasteland that was, for years, abandoned to the Infected Undead before being reclaimed by a government-sponsored company interested in merging virtual reality and survival gaming into a single seamless entertainment package. But while breaking into The Game turns out to be a lot easier than they could ever have imagined, breaking out is one hell of a killer.
The entire 8-episode 'package' is also available for a one-time purchase (at significant savings off the individual episodes price).
EPISODE 5: Prometheus Wept
After a member of their group is bitten and becomes gravely ill, Jessie makes a deal with a mysterious cult of Undead sympathizers, exchanging another member for a promised antidote. But will this elixer work? And even if it does, will she be able to get it and return before it's too late?

Meet the Author
eFiction magazine calls Saul an author armed with "a PhD and a whacked out sense of humor."
Saul spent his formative years in a leaky century-old house overlooking the Erie Canal in Upstate New York. His bedroom was a refurbished attic, which he shared with all manner of creatures, not all, he is convinced, flesh and blood.
After bouncing around the US and Europe for several years, he settled down to pursue a career in the sciences, opting to study the mysteries of human molecular genetics. But even positions as an experimental biologist, teacher, manager and biotech entrepreneur couldn't keep him from his true passion as a storyteller.
He now writes speculative fiction full time from his home in the San Francisco Bay Area. Although his house is now attic-less and waterproof, he continues to be haunted by a variety of creatures, including a wife, kids, four dogs, three cats, six chickens, a wayward rooster, and one very grumpy possum. They are all flesh and blood.
Except, maybe, for the possum, which he's convinced is the reincarnated spirit of Jack Torrance.
