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 back to deCastries' office, where deCastries is confronting the image of Alyss.
Alyss: I've placed an Oresme shield around your building, so there'll be no sneaking her out via Displacer.
DeCastries: This is OUTRAGEOUS! Property rights are sacrosanct in this city!
Different angle on Alyss and DeCastries. We can see Alyss' battle-cruiser outside his window.
Alyss: So are sapient lives, Claude.
Alyss: Now, do you want to do this the easy way, or the hard way?
Outside the DeCastries building, several new ships pop into position between Alyss' armada and the building, each of them oriented towards the armada.
DeCastries (from buidling): For me, this is the easy way.
DeCastries: Now, back off before things get bloody.
On the command deck of Alyss' ship, the Eva Jeanne, Alyss grins an evil grin.
Alyss: You poor sap, you really don't know who you're dealing with, do you?
DeCastries (elect): Er, aren't you Alyss Roaz?
