A pilot concept story idea which I put together in 2017 .
The story is set in 2060AD.....
This new feature length sci-fi photo story production follows my earlier creation of "SEASTAR 5 INVADERS FROM THE ABYSS " and will use a style of presentation like this previous series .
The story is currently in development and production .
Currently two feature length stories have been written for the Adventures of Magnus Jones .
These are titled "MAGNUS JONES AND THE STARJET RANGERS and the sequel , "MAGNUS JONES AND THE PIRATES OF THE GALAXY" .
Both stories will be available in fully illustrated book form .
Production work for the series is based at TPD STUDIOS in the North West of England ....also on location in Scotland in 2023 and into 2024 .

THE INITIAL CONCEPT.....INTRODUCTION.....and back story to set the scene......
The sea levels around the world's continents have risen beyond recognition with the melting of the ice in Antarctica following a period of climate change which has seen many land areas disappearing beneath the Oceans .
A future New York City is where our story begins . It is the year 2060 .
The City is now completely separated from the mainland with a huge wall built around it over the years for protection from the sea .
The East River has been partly built over with a new concrete land area which features canals , raised streets and high level walkways between buildings .
A technological metropolis with robots , androids and artificial intelligence mech machines in every part of life .
In this new future , problems start to appear in the darker areas of the mega city where humans begin to meddle with the control systems of the robotic machines running the city , making them last longer beyond their capabilities they were designed for....
What started as simple problems of greed and corruption with the Corporations who run the city in the higher areas ...moved to lower levels with the high tech machines being left to decay . Break downs are frequent as the robot human masters no longer care to repair them....decay and despair can be found everywhere with crime on the increase in the lower levels of this mega city .
In the front line to deal with the problems , the City's Police Force creates a special high technology unit , the MECH DEFENCE DIVISION .
They will patrol this city of the future....a new breed of police officers with high tech equipment and vehicles like the awesome CAT HAWC , an armoured land-water , hover tactical assault unit .
Our story with our hero MAGNUS JONES will be a law man like no other .
His rank of ' robot hunter tactical assault trooper 'will see him patrol the area of MECH DEFENCE DIVISION SECTOR 3 , Lower East Sixth , Babylon Village .
A future guardian of law enforcement with his high tech equipment bringing law to the streets and canals of New York Mega Island City in the year 2060 .
Its early morning , like any other day in the big mega city .
Magnus Jones wakes in his apartment at Clarkson Towers Complex .
He prepares for work and leaves the building to walk the short distance to Sam's Coffee Food Bar at the end of his street.
His Cat Hawc unit is parked in a secure area at the side of the apartment building .
This day for him will turn out beyond anything he can imagine .
Mech Defence Division Sector 5 receives an emergency call .....
......an alarm at the Second National Securities Bank .....robotic systems intruder malfunction....a job for a police tactical trooper to investigate .
Magnus Jones will be that trooper to answer the call which will lead him at the end of the day on a fantastic journey to a Galaxy far away across the Universe .
A journey for him with no known way back.....
The Planet Dunaria awaits this lawman from the planet Earth.....which he leaves in the 21st Century .....to land on a rocky desert world which is surrounded by an intergalactic war .
Magnus Jones will soon find out that the journey back to his home world will not be easy.....Dr Anubars spacecraft is no ordinary craft....the hyper warper cruiser has the capability to transfer across time....Dr Anubar is a Time Traveling Sorceror and Mystic from the planet Dunaria which is in its 25th Century....but is it in the same time zone level that he has left.....Magnus Jones will need Dr Anubar's help to find away back to his planet and time which might not be easy as the inhabitants of Dunaria don't like strangers to their world and trouble is about to find Dr Anubar.
For Magnus Jones a new life for a stranger from Earth in an alien world is about to begin.....
This is....MAGNUS JONES IN A 25TH CENTURY ADVENTURE ON DUNARIA.....
