Good Morning Fans. Have you ever wished you could exist in an alternate world? Think maybe, things would be better? Books are that alternate world for me. I love to lose myself in a great story, forget what surrounds me in real life. I hope you enjoy these, Sci-Fi books free! 

Deep Into the Game: S.W. Tanpepper's GAMELAND (Episode 1) (Volume 1) (S. W. Tanpepper's GAMELAND)
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 world ends for someone every day. One day it will end for everyone.

New York. 2120. American has been decimated, wiped out from the second Civil War. In this post-apocalyptic world, survivors are far and few between. And most of those who do survive are members of the violent gangs, predators who live in the big cities.

The death stadium where opponents are made to fight to the death, in the most barbaric of ways. There is only one rule to the arena: no one survives. Ever.

Deep in the wilderness, high up in the Catskill Mountains, 17 year old Brooke Moore manages to survive, hiding out with her younger sister, Bree.

The experiment worked, and people got what they wanted: psionic powers. But they soon found out that some things weren't meant to be discovered.

Dez Marlowe has been traveling the Wastes alone for longer than he can remember, fighting wild, blood-thirsty Scavengers and avoiding empath hunters. Like everyone else, he's just trying to survive as best he can in a chaotic and lawless world. Tired of aimless wandering, Dez gains entrance to Detroit, now a walled city ruled by the iron-fisted dictator Terrence McHale. Instead of peace, however, Dez only finds more trouble in the form of a lovely girl who just happens to be Terrence McHale's only daughter. She's run away, and Dez finds himself volunteering to go get her.

Finding her proves to be the easy part.

In a world overrun by the living dead, every victim has a story. These are some of those stories. This collection of six short stories from a world ravaged by the LZR-1143 virus tell the tale of six different people, all of whom fell victim, in different ways, to the deadly plague. 

From the pilot of a commercial aircraft, overwhelmed in midair, to the lonely soldier stranded high above a world of the undead, the six characters each face their own fears and mortality in different ways. 

This 20,000 word short-story collection features a unique selection of characters from the original zombie novel by Bryan James, LZR-1143: Infection, and from the recently released sequel, LZR-1143: Evolution.

There has been an interesting but ultimately pointless debate going on for years about what constitutes a zombie. Is it a dead person who walks around causing mayhem? Or is it someone who is violently insane and seeks only to kill and destroy? Why not both?

The trailer park is home to dozens of illegal immigrants, a hermit who has turned his back on society, a veteran of World War 2, a grumpy old woman, a family of Meth cookers known to local police officials as the Redneck Gourmets, and a beautiful young woman, are just a few.
