Overview

Fully revised and updated February 7, 2013

SERIES DESCRIPTION:
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?

Approximately 41,000 words (roughly 150 pages)

Not recommended for readers under the age of 16

I've read the first three chapters and am having a great time. I like the characters and the fact that I've been "creeped out" a lot. I am really excited to download the next section.

This book is a great read. I read the free episode when it was on sale and I was hooked. I have read all 4 episodes that are currently available. This book will keep you glued to it until it is finished. I am eagerly awaiting next months episode. I highly recommend this book to fans of zombie movies and television shows. I liked it so much each episode I read is completed that day. At my pace that is about 3-4 hours of reading.

I think I still have chills! Saul Tanpepper’s Gameland: Deep Into the Game is one wild, intense ride. I have never read a book about zombies before, and so I jumped into this one with only movie zombies in my mind. Let me tell you, my opinion about zombies is forever changed! The way Saul described the monsters is so haunting, I was pretty much shivering with fear just reading about how they walked, shuddered, rasped…their gaping dark eyes and the way the old ones’ heads exp

This is a very well-written, fascinating series! Not just your typical zombie novel, this series blends blends zombies, game culture, conspiracy and cyberpunk. The result is impossible to put down! Definitely a thinking person's zombie story!

I started this book after finishing the awesome prequel, "Golgotha" and have to say, this book was not what I expected. As awesomely and beautifully horrific as the prequel was, this novel was action packed and fast. While they share a same dire feeling, the tone of both couldn't be more different but "Golgotha", I think, is essential reading before launching into this novel. I have got to give credit to Saul Tanpepper for the world he creates in this novel and the creditable and compelling way

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.
