Six young people break into a live action gaming arcade populated by the resurrected bodies of executed criminals. Not all of them will escape alive.


Hidden in an abandoned Long Island wasteland is a terrifying secret. Twelve years before, a horrible disease killed millions without mercy. Then the dead rose. Twelve years later, the island has been turned into a sick playground for the rich, the privileged, and the sinfully twisted.

Welcome to The Game.

EPISODE 1: Deep Into the Game

Hoping to break the monotony of the long, hot summer, Zpocalypto gamer Jessie Daniels and her gang break onto Long Island. But amusement quickly turns to dread as the dangers become all too real. And all too terrifying.

EPISODE 2: Failsafe

Two members clash and another is stranded among the Infected Undead. One will make a fateful decision which will ultimately deliver them into the hands of those who would turn them all into players in The Game.

EPISODE 3: Deadman's Switch

Unable to escape, the group digs in. A leader is anointed despite doubts. A final attempt is made to leave, setting into motion events which will end with one of them dead, another infected, and all of them running for their lives.

EPISODE 4: Sunder the Hollow Ones

A mutiny splits the group. As they struggle to escape, a chance encounter with one of Gameland's residents dredges up deeply buried memories, leaving them all haunted and dubious of their survival.

EPISODE 5: Prometheus Wept

A member is handed over to a mysterious group of Undead sympathizers in exchange for a promised antidote. But will the medicine be delivered in time? Will it even work as promised?

EPISODE 6: Kingdom of Players

Armed with a potential antiserum to the reanimation virus, will they be able to save their infected friend? Or will they die and return as one of the Undead?

EPISODE 7: Tag, You're Dead

The group is torn asunder by the actions of a homicidal maniac. Another group member falls ill as the Undead break into their stronghold. Their final battle will bring them to their darkest hour.

EPISODE 8: Jacker's Code

The shocking conclusion to the high-tech horror thriller, GAMELAND: Determined to do whatever is necessary to get home, the remaining survivors face the most difficult challenges of their lives. Will any of them make it back alive? Or will they be added to the numbers of Undead Players?

About the Author

Saul Tanpepper is the speculative fiction pen name for Ken J. Howe, a retired PhD molecular biologist and biotech entrepreneur who writes full time in multiple genres from his home in California.

Saul is the author of the epic post-apocalyptic series GAMELAND, in which a group of young computer hackers break into a live action virtual reality gaming arcade populated by the resurrected bodies of executed criminals.

If you prefer shorter works, check out his two story collections, Insomnia: Paranormal Tales, Science Fiction, & Horror and Shorting the Undead: A Menagerie of Macabre Mini-Fiction.

Look for Lockdown, a standalone story in the world of THE FLENSE, an international conspiracy thriller about a French medical reporter investigating a series of mysterious events threatening to push mankind to the brink of extinction. For fans of post-apocalyptic tales, try the companion series, BUNKER 12, a high-octane thriller about a group of survivors who must leave the safety of their shelter to find the cause — and a fix— to a medical disaster that has decimated humanity.

I can barely think of a way to describe how incredible this book is. I ploughed through its 4000+ pages, never losing interest, always on the edge of my seat and eager (or afraid) to learn what was going to happen next, resenting having to stop reading to do silly things like work or sleep, and would have gladly read another 4000 after that! Nonstop action, believable characters, suspense, and zombies. If this book was more widely known, it would be a bestseller for sure.

Started reading this set of books and could not stop. Unfortunately I had to read it on my pc as my Nook could not seem to handle the size of the omnibus. Great characters, with plenty of meat on the bone (sorry) for subsequent series. I agree with a previous reviewer that, were this set of books better know, I have no doubt that it would be a huge seller. Keep up the good work Saul and I wish you continued success!

I needed a good book while recovering from a recent surgery, and this was a great choice! Couldn't put it down, and read all eight episodes until I nearly went cross eyed. Kept hoping these kids would get a break, a nice bath, a good night's sleep, a hot meal, but it just wasn't happening, not with remote controlled zombies around. What a great idea! Thanks for a great book, Saul!
