Product Description

About 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.

Amazing book, had to get it once I finished the first one. It's an utterly unique and creative way of portraying the zombie apaocalypse and it's aftermath with intruiguing characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Don't Miss Series 21 Feb. 2015
By SewAmused - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I waited until I was just about through the series before posting my review and each of my reviews on this series will just be copied and pasted. No, I'm not that lazy, but I wanted to make sure that this 5 star review wasn't in error. I waited until I was sure that I wasn't going to get a rehash of the series, with neat, pat answers all wrapped up in a neat little package. While most series I read are reviewed as I go along... I chose to wait on this one. Saul, I do apologize. I was not disappointed and this series fully rates 5 stars in my opinion.

If you believe that Saul writes about zombies, you're close, but no real cigar. The series, yes the whole series, is based on basic human nature. After sooo many years of reading, I pretty much know how people are going to react in most life and death situations. There are a lot of series books out there right now. Too many of them are predictable as far as their main characters are concerned. Some authors take away some of the choices about how you feel about the characters. John is the good guy. John is human and has flaws, but John ALWAYS did/does what he did for the greater good. John cannot and will not walk away from a situation. Never. John turns right, you are given EVERY reason, up front, about why John tuned right instead of left. It kind of takes the mystery away from John... In my opinion, and only my opinion, if you're going to keep John around, then part of why he turns right needs to be saved for later, when he decides to turn left once again... So on those occassions where John is running away from danger, we pretty much know that he will stop in his tracks to save a cat in a tree... BORING!

If I had to use one word to describe Saul's books, it would probably be "unpredictable". (Did you see that coming?) As the series unfolds, you get to make your own assumptions about the characters and their motivation, making them completely unpredictable as the series moves along. Saul's books are written to challenge you. To make you stop and reevaluate what you think you know. Saul MAKES you THINK! If you don't want to think, don't start this series. I do not believe I've ever stopped thinking when reading his books, any of them.

Most authors don't want you to have to stop in the middle of a paragraph and go look up a word. Saul doesn't care if you have to or not. No, I don't see this as a bad thing at all. Um, in some cases I suggest that you do stop the flow of the paragraph and go look up a word... I promise you, he will not come back and spoon feed you! My suggestion is to read the series. Don't expect the pabulum that you may be used to reading. I find that I've reread the series several times. Every time I find something new there. That's exciting! I do have the last book in the series coming up on the list to read... I just have to push through what I'm reading now... But before I read that final installment, I will read the rest of the series one more time, but I promise you, this will not be the final reading of this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Increasing Mystery at Gameland! 17 July 2014
By Roberto Mattos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a very well written book with a very intense story-line. It is the sequel of "Deep into the Game", episode one of this series. This is supposed to be the second of an eight series book, so it does not stand by itself as a story. It starts where episode one ended and finishes with a hook to the next episode. The plot is interesting and will keep you reading on the edge of your chair for most of the book. The characters are well developed and the scenario is so richly described that you feel you are inside the story. In episode one we saw a group of game hackers deciding to break into Long Island's Gameland, a place where nobody lives, because of an outbreak that happened twelve years before. All population that survived the outbreak were evacuated. Now the only entities that inhabit that wasteland are the zombies. Their adventure starts with a poorly planed trip idea and tension escalates during preparation for the trip and execution of the trip. They soon figure out that it is easier to enter than to leave the Island... In this sequel, after trying to leave the Island, Jake is trapped and left behind, so Jessie wants to return to rescue him. Kelly anticipates her move and goes alone for the rescue. Then the whole group unite again, trying to bring them home. It fails badly and the whole original group plus a new member (added by accident) are back in the Island and facing some more mysteries. I can barely wait to read the third episode!
This book was written by Saul W.Tanpepper in May 2012. I recommend this book to the permanent library of all thriller lovers, young adults or not. But be aware that you should read the first episode before reading this one, so you can understand what is going on and the interaction among the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is Happening on Long Island? 24 July 2012
By Coach D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Note: This review is from GAMELAND Episodes 1-8 (S. W. Tanpepper's GAMELAND). I signed up for all 8 episodes and have been leaving my reviews there. But then I noticed no one had written a review for just the 2nd episode. Check out the collected link above and you will see several other readers who like me are hooked on GAMELAND!

(from June 2012): Stayed up late last night and finshed off the 2nd episode of GAMELAND Episodes 1-8 (S. W. Tanpepper's GAMELAND) by Saul Tanpepper. This series is getting very interesting. These episodes feature a dark future, a big-brother type goverment like in 1984, zombies under goverment control (or are they?) and a strange game that hooks the masses. I am all set now for July 1st when the 3rd (of 8) episodes comes out. I then just have to "update" my recent purchase to get the new espisode. Each episode is taking me deeper and deeper into the world of GAMELAND. Some questions are answered, but many new questions pop up. Reminds me a bit of Death Race (Unrated) [Blu-ray] and Gamer [Blu-ray]. I am now 25% thru the series and I have a feeling we are just getting started.

5.0 out of 5 stars You know it's good when you buy them one at a time! 8 Dec. 2012
By Steven O'Connor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Generally I will buy the omnibus or sets when I run into a series that I enjoy. That is not the case with Gameland. I am and will buy these (wonderfully priced) editions one at a time. For no reason other than it makes great sense to pay full price to help an author earn enough so that their entire focus is, as it should be, on writing. That is what a fan I'm becoming of this series.

So do yourself a favor and add episode one and this episode to your library. The story, characters, plots and subplots are very well done and I'm feeling pretty confident that you will gladly add the next book in the series. Enjoy! Well done again Saul!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set of books. 3 May 2015
By oldguywithdogs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Having grown up on Long Island where these books take place I enjoy them all the more. The series is well written science fiction that would appeal to intelligent readers. I really enjoy the whole series and plan to buy the second set when I finish the first. Too many post apocalyptic books are just ridiculous relying on gore and non stop violence. These actually have a plot.
