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 Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
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.
