Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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.
IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]
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.

Caption: The City. Oz. Novo Paolo. Bubbleopolis.
Caption: I hate it, and I love it.
Caption: I can't imagine living anywhere else, now.
Closer-up shot of a somewhat dilapidated floating building crowded among a bunch of others that are also somewhat dilapidated. A bit of bubb and flycar traffic.
Caption: My first year in The City had been challenging enough, simply adjusting. New language, new life-rhythms, and some weird customs.
Caption: But I figured I'd done all right. I had a job that paid well enough to afford my own apartment.
Inside the building, looking along an office corridor at a door marked, 'Goméz Investigações'.
Caption: I'm a data-hound for a private investigator.
Caption: I comb the redes de info for information about people, places and events, and find connections that answer questions.
Inside the office, Diana Martelli is at a comm terminal, looking at data-screens.
Caption: But some questions don't have answers you can find in the Redes.
Caption: Such as, how many cheating-partner and insurance fraud cases can I deal with before I become a total misanthrope?
