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 Made It! [ Jun 2, 2022 ]
Third try, as they say, is a charm.
The crowdfunding campaign for QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War Part 2 made its goal one day before the closing, and climbed a bit over the top in the final day.
Over the next week Scott will design the back cover and assemble the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books (as well as the cards and T-shirts) on hand in the second half of June and will ship them out to backers ASAP.
(The e-book version will also be released by then and we'll announce that date when we have it locked down.)
Lindsey-Nabors Shipyard is an orbital platform at 1,000 km over the planet. Dialog comes from within.
Li: This way to my slip. I'd rather not dally here.
Bok: So, what's my role in getting you – us for that matter – past the citygate?
They stand next to Airlock 1138 with another holo-touchscreen. Li is typing something into it.
Li: I know you're a favorite of Alyss, so you must have the keys to get us in.
Li: I'm registering you as 'Captain' for this trip. Don't get any funny ideas, just get us safely into a bay inside.
The pair emerge from the airlock into Li's ship. Just an entryway here, very utilitarian.
Bok: And then what?
Li: You go home and make your newstreams.
Bok: Wait, when are you going to tell me about what you did in the last war?
They proceed up a narrow corridor.
Li: The short version: I did it for love.
Bok: Is there a longer version?
Li: Get us inside the citygate and I'll tell you while we taxi into the bay.
