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.

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 1646

Panel 1
Ralf has pulled Eithne away from the counter, where Mezzy and the two captains watch them.
Ralf: Twenty percent? I'm not sure I can get enough shifting this swag for the normal fees.
Eithne: I won't fail. Go on to the marketplace and do your best shifting.
Eithne: And maybe we'll have better than ship's rations for dinner.
Panel 2
Back at the counter, Mezzy confers with the captains.
Ephemeris Captain: Good to see you taking steps, but we still have damage needing repairs.
Mezzy: Go get some estimates and bring 'em back to me.
Mezzy: If they're reasonable … I'll cover your costs.
Panel 3
Satisfied, the captains depart.
Ephemeris Captain: Yer all heart, Mezzy.
Mezzy: Better a hole in my wallet than a hole in my head.
First Captain: Ya also got a way with words.
Panel 4
Eithne is sitting at a console, regarding the monitor and interface. Mezzy is standing behind her, supervising.
Mezzy: This link will lead you to the sensor net, and this menu will take you to the sequential-logic section.
Eithne: Yes yes, so far so good.
Eithne (thought): I wish he'd quit breathing down my neck.
Panel 5
Eithne is looking at her gloved hands.
Eithne (thought): This would go a lot easier if I could touch the console with my bare fingers.
Eithne: But I can't take off these 'fake hands' with him watching me.
Panel 6
Mezzy turns away in response to an angry voice calling him. Eithne sees her moment and takes off one of the gloves.
Angry voice: Mezzy! Ya pea-brained scum-bucket! Why'd ya direct me to an occupied slip?
Mezzy: Keep your pants on, Vinty! What slip was that?
Eithne (thought): Saved by the fail.
