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.

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.
Inside the clothiers'. Albert and Ka speak with a fish on a bicycle, the store saleclerk. The 'bicycle' is a self-balancing contrivance with flexible arms much like on William Montoya's hoverchair
Ka: Got a customer for ya, Beatrice.
Ka: Also I need help with some math.
Salesclerk: I'll be happy to help.
Albert glances about as Ka and the clerk bend over a pair of screens, exchanging data.
Albert (thought): Of course. The local rulers charge 15 percent on currency exchanges. So folks play games.
Ka: Wait … 12 percent? That's way high.
Clerk: Not for this amount. Unless your guy is actually buying something.
Ka leads Albert over to a full-length screen. Currently shows his reflection.
Ka: Of course he is! Come over here, Nero.
Albert: Ah … I'm Adam.
Ka: Whatever. I've got just the outfit for you.
Now Albert's 'reflection' shows him wearing a different outfit. More punk-pirate-ish.
Ka: What do you think?
Albert: Not sure whether I should be saying 'shiver me timbers' or 'baise la police.'
