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.
The gang are now in a fire-fight with guardbots coming at them from both directions.
SFX: ZING! ZING! ZING! ZING! ZING!
Sargon: That's thirty-five, I think.
Elric: You're keeping count?
Lupin: We're getting bogged down.
Alyss: Time to make a hole.
Alyss has unslung her long-gun and is firing it at a wall. A heavy beam emits from it.
Alyss: Fire in the hole!
That wall now has a gaping hole in it, and beyond that we can see another hole, and beyond that, another. Alyss is throwing some more large pebbles through the hole.
Alyss: Follow me!
The gang follow Alyss through another corridor.
Lupin: Not through that hole?
Alyss: Misdirection. Those tracers I tossed will lead them away from us.
Alyss: For a few minutes, anyway.
The gang emerge through a double-doorway, but stop short, astonished by what they're seeing.
Sargon: Good gourd.
Elric: I'd heard rumors, but ...
Alyss: This must be ...
Reverse view, so we see what the gang is seeing: A large room with four hospital-type beds, each containing a person in a hospital-type gown, his or her head pressed into elaborate machinery.
Alyss: … where they took poor Santiago.
