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.
Again, Diana is pulling on her jacket, striding towards the waiting flyer. The panda is in the right of the frame.
Caption: Four hours later:
Diana: Okay, that took forever, but I'm finally ready to ...
Monty: Just one more thing.
Diana rolls her eyes upward in exasperation.
Diana: Oh GHOURD! What is it now?
Monty: Oz is an exchange economy. You will need to know how to use your money.
Diana: My money? I have money?
Diana and Monty.
Monty: As your reward for saving her life, Alyss has created an account for you in the amount of 25 moebits.
Diana: Uh … is that a lot?
Monty: It would be enough to live on comfortably, but not extravagantly, for three years on your own.
Monty is giving a handy, something like a smartphone device, to Diana.
Diana: Wow, I guess that's … a lot?
Monty: From that has been deducted 417 mini-moebits for the flyer, for your translation devices, and sundries such as your new jacket.
Monty: Contact lenses and ear buds. You will find them in the flyer. This handy will tell you how to use them.
With her handy in hand, Diana gives the panda a kiss on the cheek.
Diana: Thank you, Monty. I don't know what I'd do without you.
Monty: Heh-heh. That is what all the girls say.
Diana: I'll be back in a few hours, but don't wait up.
The panther, panda and python watch Diana depart in the flyer.
Panther: Espero que ela vai ficar bien.*
Panda: Temos feito tudo lo posible para ela.**
Python: Eles crescem tan rápido, eles não?***
Caption 1: *I hope she will be all right.
Caption 2: **We have done all we can for her.
Caption 3: ***They grow up so quickly, do they not?
