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.
Cut to: Juan's office. Diana is there, reviewing what Juan has learned.
Caption: Juan filled me in later …
Diana: I remember the news about that fire-bombing.
Diana: A big splash and then … nothing. There was no follow-up.
Juan: According to Paul, Smith & Holder buried the investigation.
Diana looks concerned.
Diana: Buried –?
Juan: Basically, they gave him a large pay-off for damages and told him to shut up about it.
Juan: That's why he resigned and went into hiding.
Diana and Juan, both looking worried.
Diana: Geebus. Smith & Holder is the biggest assurance agency in the City.
Diana: In fact, it's my assurance agency. If they've been compromised ...
Juan: I'll send a report to Roaz, warning her. I think she's a client of theirs as well.
Diana and Juan
Diana: You think maybe we should take your friend's advice and drop this?
Juan: Diana, reputation in this business is everything.
Juan: I don't want to be known as the investigator who runs away from trouble.
