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.
BHP Forum No More [ May 1, 2021 ]
Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.
We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.
Ingvar Ranphal, a lean, angular man with dark skin and blue-white hair, is sitting in a booth at a diner, a cup of joe and a small Screen in front of him, which he's reading.
Caption: Ingvar Ranphal was a friend of Juan's back at Smith & Holder, who moved into the position Juan vacated when leaving that company.
Caption: Not a close friend, mind you. But friendly enough he agreed to m eet Juan in the middle of the morning at Jantar de Juana.
Juan is sliding into the opposite seat at Ingvar's booth.
Juan: I hope you haven't been waiting long.
Ingvar: That's okay, this is more or less my office away from the office.
Ingvar: Fewer distractions here. Order the tangerine scones.
Juan is poking a finger at an image that has appeared on the table before him. It's an interactive menu.
Ingvar: So, the old broad really did hire you?
Juan: I have no idea what you're talking about. Did you bring what I asked for?
Ingvar: Yes, but I need some assurances.
Ingvar crosses his arms and regards Juan carefully.
Ingvar: That you won't tell the old broad where you got this.
Juan: A good detective never reveals his confidential sources.
Ingvar: Yeah, but how good are you?
