"The Surveyor," by Eli T Wright Part of a Scifi-Action-Adventure series, The Surveyor brings us to a parallel of our own world, with the exception of a future where resistance to corrupt government manipulation may just lead to the next evolutionary step for humankind. Had the exploration of the known world and first contacts between strange and foreign peoples taken place with an aim to establish peace and unity among the already staggered warring civilisations around the globe, might we all have other things to say for ourselves today. The first chapter initiates readers to "The Voyage of The Fellowship." One of many timely and on-going narratives this melodious hegemony boasts for our posterity and pleasure.


Chapter 1

So a pretty long long time ago, in the big bustling bazaar of the capital. ever slowly & carefully, deep in his thoughts, the captain strode. The everyday marketgoers whizzing by. A potential customer... were any shopkeep to catch his eye. But he was there neither to sell nor buy. Yes, for the millionth time in his life, he was lost and knew not where to go. Of course, he could not let it show. For in full military dress uniform (buttons, badges, medals all shined) is expected to 'act like you know.'

Every few steps...a cordaial nod...a smile...a tip of the hat, or a good day sir...a pleasure madame...sorry,! Nervous, blank, content and confident, he'd kept this up, head held high. Calmly looking in every direction, afraid to ask the way to the castle, he looked up in the clear blue sky and released a deep relieving sigh. A tower, its spire, a coat of arms he wondered; 'what is that doing in the middle of a bizarre?' Another few steps the other way, chuckling at the sight and surprise, he could no longer hold his laughter and he shouted "look, someone's selling..." "What?"several voices nearby resounded."Nevermind, carry on, good day one & all."

Arriving at the gate, Captain Flauber made his introductions and per the guard's instruction, was rushed into the study. There, a small group was in wait. A group as secret in name as it is in function. Only having every & any thing to do with money. No light, inside was dark & dank. Hearing the door slam, he was shut in. Barely seeing the several silent figures sitting in the shadows mysteriously. Now a very rare thing began to happen, and for the second time in a day, the captain made use of his keenest senses of deduction. He scratched his head. No, nothing. He tapped his foot, stroked his beard, snapped his fingers, folded his arms, stared up into the, not one thing. Then he spoke, "Sorry for the interuption, I saw that you were selling castles. Would you be kind enough to point me to the castle of the king?"

"The Surveyor," by Eli T Wright The Surveyor jumps right into the future events of a world, very much of our making, not without visiting familiar references and events that lent to this profound present tense. The Second Chapter: "Crisis Sale," goes into the eleventh hour of one society's despotic search for individual purpose and moral virtues, among other principles, that have been removed by the passing of time under a corporate shadow-junta regime.
