Alternative Dimension

By Bill Kirton

Comedy & satire | Paperback, eBook


Joe Lorimer’s finest achievement is the online role-playing game Alternative Dimension, but it’s more than a plaything. He’s fascinated by the freedoms offered by living in a virtual world and the more sophisticated he makes his creation, the more superior it seems to daily life. His visits reveal the secrets of the real people behind the avatars – lovers, killers, crazies, animals, elves, vampires – even Health and Safety inspectors. Their stories are mostly hilarious observations on the lives we all live and the real societies they’re lived in. But Joe’s fascinating attempts to bring the real and virtual together, to fuse the person and the avatar, lead eventually to an outcome which seems a far from ideal solution. Depending on your perspective, the ending is either a triumph or a tragedy.



Bill has been a university lecturer, actor, director, TV presenter and RLF Writing Fellow. His radio and stage plays have been produced in the UK, Australia, and the USA and he wrote a prize-winning verse translation of Molière’s Sganarelle. He’s published five Jack Carston novels, a historical crime/romance, The Figurehead, a spoof crime/spy novel, The Sparrow Conundrum, a satire about real and virtual worlds in an online role-playing game, Alternative Dimension, and a children’s novel The Loch Ewe Mystery. Two of the novels have won 3 awards between them. He’s published five books on writing, study and work skills.
