In this prequel to S.W. Tanpepper's GAMELAND series, a molecular geneticist creates an experimental antidote against a synthetic military virus for reanimating the dead. Desperate to avert a human disaster of global proportions, he decides to test it on himself, but first he must expose himself to the zombie virus and allow the infection to run its full, agonizing and terminal course. The experiment and the immediate aftermath are captured in a series of voice recordings, retrieved by the government and replayed in a secret Cabinet meeting. The stunning and horrific outcome will leave each member of that meeting—and the world—forever changed.

"Golgotha" is a selected title from the story collection "Shorting the Undead and Other Horrors: a Menagerie of Macabre Mini-Fiction."
Approximately 10,000 words, plus supplementary material.
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.read more
