Saul spent his formative years in a creaky 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, 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 could keep him from his true love: literature.
eFiction magazine calls Saul a writer armed with "a PhD and a whacked out sense of humor." He now writes speculative fiction full time from his attic-less home in the San Francisco Bay Area, which he shares with his wife, kids, four dogs, three cats, six chickens and the occasional possum.

Most excellent! I have to confess that yes, the zombie/techno/Gameland aspect is quite intriguing, but I am secretly following the up and down relationship between our heroine Jessie and her sweetheart Kelly. Yes, I'm a girl :) This series is my first taste of zombie literature. The whole genre never really appealed to me. I get scared easily. But this author is doing a great job of keeping the scary parts balanced with the human touch. I can't wait for episode 3!
