Quantum Vibe

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.

Quantum Vibe: This Means War (Part 1) - By Scott Bieser

Deadline Extended, Oh My! [ Nov 29, 2021 ]

Roswell, Texas Delux cover

We've extended our Indiegogo campaign to raise money to print a maximum of 500 copies of the hard bound, full color, deluxe edition of the alt-history adventure: Roswell, Texas. We figured folks might need a little more time to get in on what is sure to be a highly collectable collectable. And one hell-of-a coffee table conversation starter.

Stay tuned for more announcements!

Transcript For Strip 1272

Panel 1
Alyss and the kids are standing just inside the door to a comfortable-looking bedroom.
Alyss: Okay, there are three rooms, interconnected with doors that lock from each side.
Alyss: So you can have as much or as little privacy as you want.
Panel 2
Alyss is holding up something that looks like a Cable TV remote.
Alyss: Each room has a video terminal, snack and drink dispenser, and toilet.
Alyss: Since you don't have implants, you will need one of these handies to control everything.
Bok: Implants?
Panel 3
Alyss points at her head.
Alyss: Most people here have cortical implants. Computers that interface directly with our brains.
Alyss: They also have radio transcievers, so we can control gadgets, and communicate with each other at a distance.
Zander: Cool. Can I get one?
Panel 4
Zander is caught between Alyss and Diana, arguing.
Alyss: I can arrange that for you, sure.
Diana: Hold on, Zander. It could be a trap.
Diana: Something like that can as easily control YOU as you can control IT.
Panel 5
Alyss looks a bit put out but keeps calm. Diana stands her ground.
Alyss: Look, I understand your concern, but we don't do that here.
Alyss: These 'plants have multiple safeguards.
Alyss: There hasn't been a case of a 'plant being hacked and used against its owner in 450 years.
Diana: Says you.

Panel 6
Zander demurs, as Alyss and Diana glare through narrowed eyes at each other.
Zander: Uh, maybe I'll think about it a bit, if that's okay with you.
Alyss: Fine by me. Take all the time you need.
Diana: You bet he will.
