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.
An obviously synthetic Porcupine, with what looks like a magnifying eyepiece in one eye. Is gazing intently at a holoscreen showing a scan result of a woman (Diana)'s head.
Porcupine: I'll be damned if I can find anything wrong with it.
Monty: Your implant's interfacing fields and electron flows are running to full spec.
Caption: You guessed it: Monty Porcupine. Casa del Roaz's brain surgeon.
Show the whole room: The Porcupine is standing on a small anti-grav platform in front of the machine projecting the holoscreen from Panel 1. Diana, sans coat, is sitting on an examining table, which has something that looks like one of those old-style dental X-Ray projectors. Areum is holding up a wall on the right.
Monty: I have received reports of some of your fellow Zytemondian refugees having similar problems after Murphy displacements.
Monty: Sadly, there are no solid leads as to a cause.
Monty: But there is one bit of good news ...
Another view of the Porcupine and Diana.
Monty: … no detectable damage to either tissue or auranium from these, er, episodes.
Monty: Which suggests a psychological component you might want to explore.
Diana: So you're saying my headaches are all in my head. Great.
The Porcupine glides over atop his anti-grav platform to 'stand' before Diana, looking like a child who'd just been told there's no Santa.
Monty: Some of the reports said one milligram of 23 percent CBD oil per day, more or less, alleviated the headaches.
Diana: My head hurts because it needs to be oiled?
Monty: Sure. Otherwise your neurons will over-heat.
Diana: What? Seriously?
