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.
Back to the balcony. Lauren, Otto, Diana
Diana: What were … do you know anything about Hayami's political inclinations?
Lauren: Political? What do you mean?
Diana: When Hayami turned against Alyss Roaz it was because Roaz was attempting to alter the political situation on Zytemonde.
Otto is refreshing Diana's drink, he smiles at her sweetly. She looks sideways at him.
Lauren: I … well, I don't recall discussing politics with her, except where it touched on the logistics of our travels.
Lauren: I don't think she was a member of any of the idio-beneficencias. She seemed uninterested in that sort of thing.
Otto has stepped back.
Lauren: The only regular beneficencias I remember Hayami speaking of were Kimberly's Doll House Club, the Sisters of Charity, and the Arti-Care Society.
Diana: The Sisters of Charity?
Lauren: A social/service group of celibate women once connected to the Roman Catholic Church but split off after the Calamities.
Otto keeps gazing at Diana, who is trying not to be distracted by him.
Diana: Celibate ...
Lauren: Well, she never mentioned any romantic interests. And she wasn't particularly 'feminine' in any sense other than her outward configuration.
Diana: What did they used to call them … nuns?
