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.

Scott's home and studio were without electric power for three days after the freak winter ice/snow storm hit Texas last week. That plus needing a day to recover and recuperate has eaten up his buffer of strips and put him a week behind schedule. We regret that a one-week pause in uploads is unfortunately necessary.
Albert is displaying a holograph of Zondra Quirós to Ka. She's peering at it unhappily.
Albert: I'm looking for a lost friend. Her name is Zondra.
Albert: She mentioned you by name once, so I'm hoping you've seen her recently.
Ka: Er … ah … who are you?
Albert has her cornered.
Albert: I told you when I set up this meeting. I'm Adam Dalgliesh.
Ka: No, I mean your real name. Nobody hires an escort under his real name.
Albert glances sideways, uncomfortably.
Albert: All right. It's Wolfe. Nero Wolfe.
Ka: All right, Mr. Wolfe. Zondra never mentioned anyone by that name.
Ka maneuvers out of the portico and stands two meters away, facing Albert with her arms akimbo.
Albert: So, you do know Zondra.
Albert: Will you help me find her?
