Overview

The water pelts her upturned eyes, yet she does not blink. It pools into the hollows beneath and around the blackened orbs until the solid gray of the sky bursts into brilliant prisms of color, vibrant lakes and oceans of molten light. And if she blinks, it spills out in a kaleidoscope of tears.
If she could only blink.
The water turns the darkness away from this dead, empty world and makes it bright once more.
Yes, the rain is good. The rain is as close to life as she can come.

HER BLOOD HOLDS HUMANITY’S SALVATION. HER HEAD, THE MEANS TO DESTROY IT.

As the world teeters on the brink of a technological and biomedical apocalypse, the one entity with the power to intervene, Arc Enterprises, chooses to ignore the warning signs and instead pushes forward with a new twist on their most popular product, THE GAME, where Operators control reanimated Players in a live action virtual reality arcade on abandoned Long Island. After a network lapse threatens an outbreak in her hometown, gamer Jessica Daniels stumbles on a plot to hijack the implants of the living. Now she must stop the hacker before someone she loves dies.

A 120,000 word novel from the world of GAMELAND.

For ages 16 and older.

Meet the Author

Saul writes in several speculative fiction genres, including horror, cyberpunk, biopunk, and straight science fiction. A former Army medic and trauma specialist, he earned a PhD in molecular biology and genetics; his works are heavily informed by these past experiences.

Saul spent his formative years in a century-old house overlooking the Erie Canal in Upstate New York. He shared an attic room with all manner of creatures, not all, he is convinced, flesh and blood.

After several years spent overseas and working his way to executive positions in biotech, he returned to his true passion of storytelling.

He now writes full time from his home in the San Francisco Bay Area. He continues to be haunted by a variety of creatures, including a wife, kids, three dogs, three cats, twenty chickens, a wayward rooster, and one very grumpy possum. They are all flesh and blood.

Except for the possum, which he's sure is the reincarnated spirit of Jack Torrance.
