About David Bond

Born in Stretford, Manchester, I am living in Sale and working in Stockport (both near Manchester, that wet place with the football teams).

My first published story here on Smashwords is 'Life and Death on the Tracks', a dark little tale that won second prize with the Darker Times fiction competition. My second published story is 'The Sim Diary', which won an honorary mention in the Five Stop Story fiction competition. Any praise or criticism can be directed to '', and you can find a link to my travel blog below! Thanks for reading!

Review by: Mike White on Oct. 5, 2016 :
God, this is awesome. The voice of the main character really comes through, and the author did a great job of exploring the premise. If Rod Serling had written a twenty-first century episode of the Twilight Zone, it would probably have looked like this.

However, in this case, we know the twist up front and its implications are really explored. I actually really felt sorry for the character at the end of the story. The ending actually almost seems bitterly metaphorical.

How does a simulated virtual game existence compare to real life? David Bond presents a few unexpected and thought-provoking conclusions. Definitely worth a read.
