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.
They're on a broad balcony projecting from the rear of the building, overlooking a garden. DeClayre gestures towards one of the two chairs flanking a small, round table.
Caption: Naturally, she chose to put us outside under that too-bright sky.
DeClayre: Please make yourself comfortable. Otto will attend to us presently.
Caption: I could have pulled out a hat or eyeshades, or asked to convene indoors.
DeClayre and Diana are seated at the table. Otto approaches. Otto looks like a 14-year-old boy, which he in fact is. Blond and just a bit rounded.
Caption: But I didn't want to betray a weakness at first meeting.
DeClayre: We have a specialty beverage, a mango-citrus sparkler, produced from our own farm.
DeClayre: Would you like to try some with me? It's very refreshing.
The drinks have been delivered … Diana and DeClayre each have a glass, and there's a half-empty pitcher of same on the table. Otto stands by, staring at Diana. She doesn't seem to notice.
DeClayre: She disguised herself as a human? That's … generally frowned upon here.
Diana: So I've learned. But obviously it was necessary for her task.
Diana: Rob … Arti-folk are a separate, ruling elite on my homeworld.
Same shot, as Diana sips her drink.
DeClayre: And Alyss thought she could fix that all by her lonesome?
DeClayre: Mind you, I adore Alyss Roaz but sometimes she falls into hubris.
Caption: I must admit, I liked Lorelei right off the bat.
