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.
IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]
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.
Lorelei and Diana stand in the front doorway of the mansion. Dong and nieces are waiting at the foot of the steps.
Caption: And so I reached a deal with Dong Gyeon-Hoon, packed my flyer and toothbrush, and:
Diana: Well, I guess this is it. Thanks for everything, Lorelei.
Lorelei: You haven't quite seen everything yet.
Diana: What do you mean?
Lorelei and Diana proceed down the walk to the landing pad, with the guards trailing.
Lorelei: How are you going to fit your new retinue in that little coupe of yours?
Diana: Um, my flyer can convert to a 4-seater, but it loses a lot of its speed and maneuverability.
Lorelei: Suppose I can offer you an alternative?
The five stand in the background gazing upon Diana's new ride, resting on the landing pad: A flying car with a definite retro-1950s styling, with seating for four.
Lorelei: From my collection. I was going to move her to storage, because my garage is full.
Diana: I … don't know what to say.
The crew are now standing around the car, checking it out.
Lorelei: Don't let the vintage style fool you. This honey can push 50 gravs for up to 6 hours, and is space-worthy for trips up to three days.
Lorelei: And while not transmorphic like your flyer, it does transform into several configurations.
Lorelei: You'll see.
