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.

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.
Back at her office, Diana is taking off her coat before settling in to work.
Caption: Juan was late getting in to work on Primaday.
Caption: That wasn't particularly unusual. He often did weekend benders, and dragged-ass in first work-day.
Caption: I sometimes wondered whether he'd straighten up, if I gave him what he wanted.
Diana is seated at her desk, holding up the memchip Alyss had given her.
Caption: He's really not a bad person, or a bad employer.
Caption: He did save my life, after all, and more or less lost his old job on my account.
Caption: And he's never lied to me.
Diana places the chip into the reader on the left of her desktop keyboard.
Caption: I inserted the chip into the secure-reader, feeling surprisingly anxious.
Caption: Hayami turned out to be a colossal liar, first posing as a human on Zytemonde and then turning against Roaz, who had hired her.
Caption: What sort of dirt did the original investigation turn up on her?
Diana is looking rather dejectedly at the desktop holoscreen.
Caption: But I was sorely disappointed.
Caption: The Smith & Holder report just listed Hayami's employment agent, a few casual associates, and her meager holdings.
Caption: Plus, various notes from Roaz herself observing various facets of Hayami's behavior. They painted a picture of an earnest young idealist, not some schemer.
