If you do a google search for The Bureau you find this link http://www.thebureau-game.com/
which leads to the upcoming video game release. However, for those of you either know me, the Lokians series, Eternal Press, or the old The Bureau Hq website, you know these guys are ripping me off nearly verbatim.
My problem isn’t even with the use of the term The Bureau, or that they can stand to profit. My problem is this, copied from the IGN site:
The Bureau tells the origin story of the clandestine XCOM organization’s first encounter with a mysterious and devastating enemy. Originally established as America’s covert defense against the Soviet Union, The Bureau must adapt and overcome a threat unlike anything the world has faced before. As special agent William Carter, players will call the shots and pull the trigger, leading their squad of agents in the high-stakes secret war for humanity’s survival. Paramount to repelling the outside threat is The Bureau’s ability to cover-up the enemy’s existence in order to prevent worldwide panic
this is surprisingly similar to the text found in my old The Bureau website:
Due to recent trepidations and alien attacks on our home planet, Earth, we have decided to bring recent events to light. While the public is not altogether familiar with the concept of The Bureau, they will be slowly educated. First and foremost, let us begin with a little history.
The year was 1947, the place, Roswell, New Mexico. An unidentifiable craft had crashed. Word quickly spread like wild fire that aliens had landed on our planet. The next day, the information was retracted. Subsequent sightings of alien crafts and strange humanoids were documented. The military decided to dedicate a portion of its forces to extra-terrestrial studies.
Then there’s the Lokians series’ “Supplemental” at the end of all the novels:
Bureau Headquarters, New York
The Bureau has many offices throughout the galaxy. One such
office is at the base of the Bank of the World building in New York
on planet Earth. It is also the first Bureau Headquarters.
Agents stationed here have a Human-centric focus. Naturally,
they study alien races, but only in a manner that directly affects
Bureau Headquarters, Io
This Bureau office is built into the side of a cliff on Io, Jupiter’s
moon. Unlike the B.O.T.W. building, all the floors are dedicated to
A gorgeous, frozen lake sits just outside the gray steel building.
Inside, agents work furiously to maintain solid relationships with
nearby alien races.
Also, we find the first mention of what The Bureau is in Lokians: Book1 Beyond the End of the World:
“True we first made contact with a race simply known as ‘the
Grays’ in the 1940’s,” Adams said.
O’Hara arched his brows as he set his teeth. He had heard of
“The Grays were actually created by another race. They were
genetically engineered to carry out certain tasks,” Franklin
“From their technology we were able to reverse engineer a
few things, patent a few ideas, and finally in 1963 we created ‘The
Bureau’,” Adams said.
Once more O’Hara was taken aback. Clearly this was no lie.
Unbelievable events had and were taking place. The effects of the
discoveries made since his first solo mission were compounding.
The Captain decided to listen to every detail.
“We made little contact with the race who created the Grays.
Apparently they were not interested in building relations. Then a
few other odd occurrences took place; the androids on the moon,
the pyramids on Mars, and finally our knowledge of the Sumerian
culture,” Franklin said.
“Right, the Sumerians clearly were keeping contact with a race
of aliens long before. The Sumerians knew the Earth revolved
around the sun. Their knowledge passed on to the Egyptians.
It wasn’t until Christianity took the forefront that some of this
knowledge was squelched, though I do believe much of it is available
to the proper eyes,” Adams paused.
The Captain nodded giving the impression of a cool and collected
individual but the information had him reeling.
“Why was this kept secret?” he slowly asked.
“Actually it wasn’t,” Adams said.
“No, there were some authors and entertainers, even a few
Presidents who tried to bring it to light,” Franklin added.
“There was always a global control issue. The governments
of the world needed to keep this information quelled in order to
push their agenda,” Adams explained.
“A lot changed after we began harvesting resources off planet.
Suddenly those agendas didn’t matter as much. There was also the
fact that the Sumerians’ alien friends never returned,” Franklin
As the Captain observed the relaxed demeanor of the agents
something clicked in his mind.
So, obviously, Producer Harvey Whitney needs to check with writer Jordan Thomas because this is pure crap. At least, when I make reference to something, for instance the Igigi, which are used in Zecharias sitchin’s books, I allude to his credit in the novel. Besides, when’s the last time Sitchin wrote a book? Mine just came out in 2012.
Here’s what I want, and it’s simple, I want to establish contact with Harvey Whitney. If anyone can help, I’d certainly appreciate it. Thanks for reading.
