WhiteSpace: Episode 2
From the Kings of the Serial, Sean Platt and David Wright, who brought you the post-apocalyptic series, Yesterday’s Gone, comes the new sci-fi horror series, WhiteSpace.

Hamilton Island seems like the perfect home. 

The Puget Sound bedroom community has it all — beautiful homes with white picket fences, a thriving tech sector, and one of the best school systems in the state.

But not everything is as it seems.

And on the morning of September 1, the veil is lifted in a school shooting that will shake the island to its core, and expose an evil dynasty and a dark conspiracy that threatens the future of our species.

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.

A jaded tycoon refocuses all his energies on disrupting the undeniably diabolical course of the future for the good of the world system.

After years of being undermined and targeted in business because of his progressive views and intentions, Henry 38 becomes fed up with the corruption of the elitist establishment and realises he's in a strong position to resist current trends and make changes on his own terms.  He gradually rechannels his time, energy and extensive wealth into R&D programmes focused on disrupting the future, an important part of which involves providing opportunity and power to those who have a strong desire for systemic change.

He observes and facilitates his social experiment from a distance for many years, eventually coming out of the dark to participate actively in the course of world changing events executed by the organisation put together by his most successful aspirant, Ikaros Jonez.
Henry and the revolutionary organisation pool resources and proceed to develop an effective R&D environment to experiment with New World Dynamics in an attempt to generate a progressive, stable and prosocial world system.

Not all is as it seems, though, and everything they've achieved and believe in will be tested on a grand scale before coming close to reaching their ambitions for a better world.


[This is the third instalment in the NEW WORLD TRILOGY released in December 2012. The other titles include DAY ZERO and AGENT ZERO.]

Andreas, a scientist-technologist in Venus Colony, uncovers the nature of a diabolical threat to the whole population of the solar system.

When a mysterious incident causes the horrible deaths of thousands of inhabitants in Venus Colony, Andreas narrowly escapes with his life. During the ensuing investigation, he soon finds himself drawing different conclusions to those of this colleagues and superiors. With a sense of urgency, he decides to go straight to the top with his ominous results in order to avoid being undermined by the rampant politicking entrenched in the colony.

Sascha and Yanyan are receptive to hearing his case and subsequently provide him with the resources to conduct a bold operation to purge the system of the underlying threat. Meanwhile, the stakes have been raised as Earth has recently been terraformed and social experiments on the surface have begun in earnest.

While Andreas engages in covert R&D, Sascha and Yanyan must continue on as normal attempting to make progress towards a better world despite their beliefs and hopes having an ever-present risk of being ripped from them and the remnants of humanity.


The universe has passed a tipping point: all seems lost to the mounting horrors of extensive subjugation, genocide and destruction.

Having no choice but to come to their own aid, two jaded post-punk transhumans, Axilla and Pace, struggle to establish a relatively anarchic space state despite the aggression bearing down upon them from all directions.

Their increasingly visible defiance is met with a bombardment from external and internal sources, leading to total warfare, which harshly impacts upon their efforts and ambitions. They depend desperately and intrinsically on their R&D programmes for continued survival in the tenuous hope that they may buy themselves enough time to complete their subversive mission.

Their belief in their reality is repeatedly tested as they suffer many losses, defeats, setbacks and frustrations along the way, yet they're mindful that their options are severely limited and that there's no hope whatsoever without persistent resistance.

But do they really understand where and what they are? Do they really know what they're up against? And, importantly, does their precarious situation even have the slightest hope? Can they really rely on the extremes of resistance and R&D to provide any viable answers and solutions...?


Pace, a disillusioned transhuman (one of the main characters in AFTER EARTH), lands on a distant world in order to find some respite from the horrors that have been besieging him relentlessly for so long.

Unwittingly undermining his own intentions, he soon becomes entangled in a subversive underground movement that's seeking to disrupt the unjust and self-serving actions of the establishment and its affiliate organisations.

Events persuade him to bring his own resources to bear on the situation despite knowing this will have the unfortunate effect of providing the region, which has 'enjoyed' relative obscurity for so long, with unwanted visibility and attention.

As the situation deteriorates and amplifies still further, Pace is confronted with a game changer that addresses many of his underlying concerns that have been nagging at him for years and that requires the reorienting of the modus operandi of his sub-group of initiates and, importantly, the establishment of a new R&D programme.

The race is on to achieve their new objectives before the whole of their reality collapses in around them.
