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.
We Made It! [ Jun 2, 2022 ]
Third try, as they say, is a charm.
The crowdfunding campaign for QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War Part 2 made its goal one day before the closing, and climbed a bit over the top in the final day.
Over the next week Scott will design the back cover and assemble the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books (as well as the cards and T-shirts) on hand in the second half of June and will ship them out to backers ASAP.
(The e-book version will also be released by then and we'll announce that date when we have it locked down.)
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.
