Book "Golgotha" by Saul W.Tanpepper

About the Book: In this prequel to S.W. Tanpepper's GAMELAND series, a molecular geneticist creates an experimental antidote against a synthetic military virus developed to reanimate the dead. Hoping to avert a human disaster with global implications, he plans to test it on himself, but to do so he will first have to self-administer the zombie virus and allow the infection to run its full course. The process and the aftermath are captured in a series of voice recordings, leaving their audience little doubt about the experiment's spectacular--and horrific--outcome.

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.

My Review: I read the first episode of GameLand Series (Deep Into the Game) before reading this prequel and now everything fit into place. A recording of an experience from a immunologist named Eugene is played by a Special Advisor to the President named Richard Daniels. In the recording we see how things can go really wrong and what happened next is quite interesting and gives explanation and origin to the GameLand Series. This is a short story that you can read in one sit. It took me around two hours to read the whole book. If I could advise, I would say to the reader to read this one before start reading the series. It is worth for all the explanation given about the origin of the virus that devastated earth. Very intense story, should be in the permanent library of all readers that love a very well written science-fiction where zombies play a major role.
This book was written by Saul W.Tanpepper and published by Brinestone Press in March 2012 and I received this book from the author. I was not requested to review or give my opinion on the book. It was really a gift, but anyway all opinions here are my own.
