Falcon Boy: Vol. 1: 70 ‘The Needs of the Many’ Part III

actionFBI’m sure that you are probably thinking here about how rude Falcon Boy was being to Captain Lorimer. She was the real representative of law and order here, and deserved the respect of everyone.

She also had the whole weight of the world on her shoulders, and so we can forgive her if she seemed a little cautious. She needed to balance the needs of the many with the desires of the few.

We cannot all just jump into every situation without thinking carefully about where we might land. Otherwise, everyone would jump and all land in a heap together. This would achieve nothing, unless there was an occasion when everyone needed to land in a heap together. Even then, it isn’t clear what that would really accomplish.

On the other hand, it is perhaps understandable that Falcon Boy is keener to act than to think. After all, superheroes are traditionally known more for their action than they are for their powers of introspection.

Just think how different this story would have been if Falcon Boy had been the brooding type and spent all of his time questioning his position within a seemingly hostile and random universe.

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: http://bit.ly/VIRO1UKKindle http://bit.ly/VIROBOOK1 Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at www.falconboy.ie.
