Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
Bok is having a restaurant lunch with Zander, and also Lupin and Sargon (from Volume 4: Venus 23) as Elric hurries in to join them.
Bok: Elric! Glad you could join us after all.
Elric: Sorry I'm late, I've been unbelievably busy these days.
Elric takes a seat between Lupin and Sargon.
Lupin: Busy? I hear a lot of businesses are struggling to stay open, with all this uncertainty.
Elric: Funny thing is, Lupin, when you destroy thousands of buildings, people want to replace them.
Sargon: Replace the buildings? The destroyed borvonite spheres are still being re-grown.
Bok: Sargon, I would imagine most owners want the replacements to be beefed-up, stronger, heat-resistant, etc.
Bok: That means new designs.
Elric: Exactly so, Bok. Not everyone is a pessimist.
Elric: I only made journeyman architect a few cycles ago and Senhor Mackelmor has dumped a hundred projects on me.
Lupin: So, Elric old chum, since you're prospering I don't suppose you'll be picking up the tab for this lunch?
