David Vincent is a man at war: at war with the office; at war with himself; and at war with the screen that stares into his eyes. A dark force in the Ministry of the Environment’s ‘Rainbow Building’, he secretly fights green hypocrisy, radioactive civil service jargon and the machinations of his ambitious supervisor. David is a hero for our age: the last man in the office. Join him on one 9-5 day, as he strives to expose the dark power behind the screen; hampered only by his delusional visions, his descent into madness, and his inability to conduct small talk. Mundane office politics are transformed into epic adventures as he tries to show the office what it does not want to see: the other side of the screen.

About the Author
After completing a psychology degree, the author realised that he was profoundly misanthropic and set about travelling the world looking for aliens to take him to another planet. Unable to speak any foreign languages and almost incapable of holding a conversation in his own, he decided to teach English as a foreign language because this was the only job that would allow him to travel widely without any marketable skills or noticeable intelligence. He has unsuccessfully searched for life from outer space in classrooms in the following countries: Spain, China, Russia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Beirut, Dubai, Sri Lanka, Lebanon France, Vietnam and Korea. In the future, he hopes to continue his search for alien life forms in different countries, and he would be most obliged if any aliens reading this work could spirit him off to an altogether more exotic planet in a more harmonious dimension. About two dozen of his pieces have appeared online -- mainly travel writing and short stories, and one of them, The Interactive Classroom, won a Bewildering Stories’ Mariner Award in 2010. His latest novel, Kev the Vampire, was published by Rebel ePublishers. He can be contacted at email@example.com
