Overview

Fully revised and updated February 7, 2013

SERIES DESCRIPTION:

In the center of Long Island's forbidden wasteland, overseen by an omni-powerful corporation known as Arc Properties, is GAMELAND, a virtual reality arcade where the rich and privileged act out their base fantasies employing zombies as avatars. Connected to their Infected Undead Players via neural implants (government-mandated in the event of an outbreak) and using remote gaming controllers, Operators pit the Undead against one other in a high stakes game of violence, money and power. For the poor, the televised action on state-controlled Media streams is both horrifying and powerfully addictive.

Volunteering to become an Undead Player is illegal, but the lure of fame and money attracts some to The Game.

On a whim, a small group of computer hackers and gamers decides to sneak onto the island, hoping to catch a glimpse of the uncontrolled Infecteds, unimplanted victims of the outbreak that took place there over a decade earlier. But while breaking in turns out to be a lot easier than any of them could have ever imagined, getting back out winds up being a hell of a killer. As they soon discover, when you play The Game, you play to win. Losers go home dead. Or Undead.

The series consists of eight episodes publishing monthly through December 2012. Individual episodes and the full series omnibus will be available in paperback by Christmas 2012.

EPISODE 7: Tag, You're Dead

Torn between rescuing Ashley from the homicidal Ben and staying with Jake, who's been infected, Jessie, Kelly and Reggie fight over what their next move should be. But then Reggie mysteriously falls gravely ill and the Undead breach their defenses. Soon the three are fighting for their lives in a battle that will lead them to their darkest hour.

Episode 7 is approximately 47,000 words (roughly 170 pages)

Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Lori Parker
(5 star review from the full GAMELAND series)
This book is played out like a tv show. Each episode ends on a cliff hanger much like the tv show the Walking Dead or Lost. It makes for a fast paced, interesting read. Without annoying commercials to boot. I'll take it! The writing was great. You are drawn in and invested in the character Jessie from almost the get go. She's a normal teenager, angsty, insecure, strong willed, loves video games, and has a knack for breaking the rules.

My heart is pounding, my eyes are wide, and the first utterance I made after finishing this episode was, "Unbelievable!"
I am now a zombie convert. Prior to this amazing story, I was the girl who would shy away from the realm of horror books and films. If coerced into consuming these works, I merely caught glimpses of terror between my shielding fingers. This story has changed me.

A great, fast reading story that you can't put down. I like how the author has slowly revealed important background information as the story continues. The characters are realistic, with typical teen problems and desires. I highly recommend this series!
Goodreads - Dawn reader
I love this series! I hate having to wait for each episode to be released! I love that it keeps me wondering after I finish the latest one...I hate having to wait...I love the characters...I hate having to wait...I love the idea SW Tanpepper has brought to life in this story, I am completely involved and I love hating that I have to wait!! I would have torn through the whole series and that would not have given me the chance to really appreciate it.

To say I'm on edge is putting it lightly. If the author was doing a public reading and stopped at the end of this book I think I would grab him by the shirt and shake him until he continued. Seriously. I really got sucked into this book despite being scared during the last half of it.
