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