"This is quickly becoming my favorite science fiction series ever." --Reader Review

As a Space Corps agent in the year 2285, Elfrida Goto doesn’t expect to be liked. Her job is to help and protect colonists in space … but they usually don’t want to be helped, and the squatters on 11073 Galapagos are no exception.

Tasked with evacuating them from their doomed asteroid, Elfrida struggles with an uncooperative telepresence robot and an angry local liaison. It doesn’t help that she’s got a crush on her boss, the aloof and intriguing Gloria dos Santos.

But when a lethal AI fleet attacks Elfrida's home base, her mission changes in a hurry. Now, she has just one chance to save the people of 11073 Galapagos. Fighting was never in her job description … but she’ll just have to learn. Fast.

The Galapagos Incident is the first novel in the Elfrida Goto Trilogy, Volume I of the Sol System Renegades series, an epic science fiction adventure that reviewers are calling a new classic in the space opera genre.

About the author

Hey, fellow sci-fi junkies! I'm just your average reader who couldn't find enough great science fiction, so I turned to writing it myself. I live in Tokyo and I spend my days at an office participating, with poorly concealed ambivalence, in the preparations for our planet to be taken over by robots.

I'm actually quite optimistic and I love telling stories about the future, because no matter how much technology changes, human beings never do! Even more than that, I love sharing these stories with readers, and that is why I'd like to give you a FREE book.

Three full-length space thrillers. Thousands of minds blown.

The year is 2285. Humanity is locked in conflict with an enigmatic AI based on Mars. While Earth dawdles, it's up to a handful of brave men and women to defend our far-flung colonies thoughout the solar system ...

The Galapagos Incident

Elfrida Goto is a field agent for the Space Corps in the Venus sector. Helping and protecting space colonists is her job ... even when that means evicting them from their homes. But when the enemy attacks her home base, her latest job goes sideways in a hurry. To save the colonists of 11073 Galapagos, she'll have to go up against the most dangerous foe humanity has ever known.

The Vesta Conspiracy

Elfrida Goto is a hero and a lifesaver, but as far as the Space Corps is concerned, she's a reminder of the worst disaster ever to befall the Corps. Banished to 4 Vesta, the boondocks of the asteroid belt, she's commissioned to work with the University of Vesta to look for more resource-rich asteroids. Instead, she finds something deadly.

The Mercury Rebellion

After her bruising experiences in the asteroid belt, Elfrida Goto lands a secure job on Mercury, the factory of the solar system. But violence is about to engulf the hottest planet. Humanity's AI nemesis is closing in on Mercury, and only Elfrida stands in its way ...

Saul Tanpepper
6 Hackers, 1 Game... and 10,000 Undead.

Everyone loves Survivalist, a live-action, virtual reality show based on Arc Entertainment's The Game, where cybernetically controlled zombies do battle in a video arcade in the middle of a Long Island wasteland. It's to die for.

If you're rich enough, you can buy your way in. If you're desperate enough, you can volunteer to become one of the Undead 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 plan leads Jessie and her friends onto Long Island hoping to catch a glimpse of the infected victims of a decades-old outbreak. But while breaking in might be easy, getting back out is a hell of 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. Structured on television's The Walking Dead and Law and Order, the nearly 400,000-word series consists of eight individual episodes, first published monthly between May and December 2012. 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.

Also available from the world of GAMELAND:

Infected: Hacked Files from the GAMELAND Archive. Includes a timeline of key events, a glossary of terms, character dossiers, essays, articles and never-before-released voice transcripts from the Golgotha recordings. 

Velveteen. The story of Cassie, a six-year-old girl-turned-zombie, who has been trapped in a bathroom... until her inadvertent release twelve years later (by Jessie in Episode 4 of GAMELAND). 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.

Signs of Life (Jessie's Game, Book One) - This sequel to the GAMELAND series uncovers the secret reasons behind Jessie's trip to the Long Island arcade and people who never wanted her to come back.

A Dark and Sure Descent - Prequel to the GAMELAND series, this book tells the story of the Long Island outbreak which lead to the island being abandoned by all but the Undead.

With the rule of law in the Belt crumbling, a deal with the biggest crook on Ceres looks like his only hope...
