Hu Iz Alyss Roaz?
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

A Message From Alyss
So, we fell just a few hundred short of our goal, but that's okay, because it's a "Flexible Goal" meaning we still get the funds raised (minus Indiegogo's cut) so we can and will fulfill the promised perks.
We are grateful to all who contributed, and yes you are all now founding members of the "Free Cosmos Project," with all the privileges membership entitles you thereto. (Unless you don't want the honor, we'll respect that too.) Which for now means we'll be whipping up a spiffy little Certificate for each of you, physical versions sent out with the physical books requested, and PDF versions for the rest.
Indiegogo will disburse the funds to us soon. And we've already got the ball rolling printing books, and postcards, as well as the above-mentioned FCP certificates. And we'll be talking a bit more about the Free Cosmos Project in the coming weeks.
Alyss leads the kids into a luxurious living room.
Bok: You must have really high social status here.
Alyss: I suppose so. But more importantly, I'm rich.
Diana: Oh, so I guess you like to go slumming on worlds like Zytemode?
Alyss, Diana and Zander. Diana is still being cranky.
Alyss: Slumming? Not at all. Studying.
Diana: Interfering, more like it.
Zander: Uh, Alyss? I wonder if I could ask you ...
Alyss and Zander.
Alyss: You can always ask, Zander.
Zander: Could I see your city again? With my own eyes, I mean.
Zander: Not through a monitor screen.
Alyss leads the kids up some stairs.
Alyss: Sure thing, kiddo.
Alyss: There's an observation balcony. I don't use it much.
Alyss: I'm a bit agoraphobic.
Alyss and the kids are looking out past a railing at the wondrous space-megapolis.
Bok: What … what do you call this … place?
Alyss: It has lots of names. Bubbleopolis, France, Novo Paolo, Kūchū Rōkaku ...
Reverse angle to look at Alyss and the kids. The kids are gazing in wonderment, but Alyss is looking at the kids.
Alyss: … but my favorite is 'Oz.'
Bok: I like 'Oz.'
Zander: What the heck's a 'France'?
Alyss: To explain 'France' I'd have to explain 'Coneheads,' and I'm not sure I can.
