~ Chapter One ~
I CAME to woozily, staring into the puss of one of those white-sweater-tied-around-the-shoulders kind of guys. Fiftyish. Stingy smile. Silver-feathered mane. Mirror-slave blue eyes.
Winston Hamilton. One of the world's richest men.
The two goons who'd drugged me were slouched against the wall, one on either side of me. The tallest stroked a shiner under his left eye - a little memento I'd gifted him during our recent 'get acquainted' encounter. The other picked his nose like it was some sort of performance art.
I could see Hamilton clearly now. I coughed, and he grinned, leaning towards me from the throne of a big black leather chair that loomed up from behind his desk. A pink mole about the size of a raisin dangled from his jaw. He pulled on it. It was the same nervous tic I'd noticed on a recent TV interview he'd done "60 Minutes."
"Ah, Mr. Pierce," Hamilton said. "How nice of you to join us."
The goons stiffened, both looking at me like they wished they'd used a real gun to take me down

Title: Quest for Knowledge (Volume 1 of the FirstWorld Saga)
Author: Christopher Jackson-Ash
FirstWorld is at the centre of the multiverse. It is the dimension that existed as the universe before The Sundering ripped apart Time and created a myriad of new dimensions. Now FirstWorld is under threat together with the entire multiverse. A Hero is needed to wield a great Sword, perhaps the most powerful weapon ever created.
Simon Redhead is a medical student in the near future of a dimension not unlike our own. He is shy and mild-mannered but by chance carries the genes that could make him a great manifestation of the Everlasting Hero. He is snatched from his dimension and taken to FirstWorld where he learns about the threat and is pressed into service.
How will someone who has sworn to do no harm reconcile with the opportunity to take up a terrible weapon and butcher people? Simon will struggle to understand the cosmic battle between Law and Chaos, and the role that The Balance plays. He will try to understand where good and evil fit in.
His travels in time will inadvertently contribute to The Sundering. Will he choose to stay in the past with a primitive Paleolithic tribe, where he finds happiness, or will he return to the present and help his new friends defeat the enemy at the gates of the Wizards' Keep?
This is epic fantasy inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien and Michael Moorcock. It is elves & dwarves meets sword & sorcery with a few time travel paradoxes thrown in for good measure.
