Summary

6 Hackers, 1 Game... and 10,000 Undead. 
 
Everyone loves watching Survivalist, a live-action, virtual reality show based on Arc Entertainment's The Game, where real zombies battle in a Long Island wasteland. It's a show to die for. 
 
With enough money, you can buy your way in as a Gamer to control one of the undead warriors. If you're desperate enough, you can volunteer to become one of the Players. Jessie Daniels and her gang of computer hackers plan to break their way in. 
 
Welcome to GAMELAND. Access Restricted. 
 
EPISODE 1: Deep Into The Game 
A reckless, end-of-summer jaunt leads Jessie and her friends onto Long Island just hoping for a glimpse of the infected victims of a decades-old outbreak. But while breaking in is easy, getting back out is a killer. It doesn't take long before they realize they're part of The Game. 
 
EPISODE 2: Failsafe 
Jessie and Kelly clash after one of their group gets stranded among the Infected Undead, forcing Kelly to make a rash decision which will ultimately deliver them into the hands of those who would turn them all into mindless players in The Game. 
 
Deep into the Game and Failsafe are the first two books in the hi-tech dystopian thriller GAMELAND. Season One is structured after television's The Walking Dead and Law and Order. All are available digitally in single and multi-episode packages, as well as in an omnibus edition. Also available in print. 
 
Not recommended for readers under age 15.

Cassie has something she needs to do, something she's been thinking about for a long, long time. A terrifying twist on a classic children's tale. 
 
Love, Virtuality, and the Good Kill. The start of a new spin-off series featuring Jessie's brother, Eric, and his time in the Marines' elite Omega Force using zombies as killing drones. First publication: The Future Chronicles: Gameer Chronicles anthology.

    "We should expect this young woman to be more powerful than our average novice, possibly even more powerful than the average magician." 
    This year, like every other, the magicians of Imardin gather to purge the city of undesirables. Cloaked in the protection of their sorcery, they move with no fear of the vagrants and miscreants who despise them and their work—until one enraged girl, barely more than a child, hurls a stone at the hated invaders . . . and effortlessly penetrates their magical shield. 
    What the Magicians' Guild has long dreaded has finally come to pass. There is someone outside their ranks who possesses a raw power beyond imagining, an untrained mage who must be found and schooled before she destroys herself and her city with a force she cannot yet control.

    "Even if a magician's powers surface of their own accord, he will soon be dead if he does not gain the knowledge of how to control them." 
     
    Alone among all the novices in the Magicians' Guild, only Sonea comes from lowly beginnings. Yet she has won powerful allies—including Lord Dannyl, newly promoted to Guild Ambassador. But Dannyl must now depart for the Elyne court, leaving Sonea at the mercy of the lies and malicious rumors her enemies are busy spreading . . . until the High Lord Akkarin steps in. The price of Akkarin's support is dear, however, because Sonea, in turn, must protect his mysteries—and a secret that could lead a young novice mage deep into the darkness. 
    Meanwhile, Dannyl's first order to resume High Lord Akkarin's long-abandoned research into ancient magical knowledge is setting him on an extraordinary journey fraught with unanticipated peril—as he moves ever-closer to a future both wondrous . . . and terrible.
