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.)
Silhouetted figure stands over the comatose Jane Doe, on Jane's right side. The figure's hand reaches down towards Jane's shoulder.
Figure (thinking): Cytomax is undetectable in the blood, once it has done its work.
Figure: It produces an instant cytokine storm which stops the heart and chokes off all fluid circulation in the brain.
Figure: Since she's in an induced coma she won't feel anything.
Medium close-up. The figure's hand is pulling Jane's coverlet and gown aside to expose the mediport on her right shoulder. One feed line is attached, but there are two other ports on the device. We should see the hypo-injector in the figure's other hand.
Figure: Normally, an injection site could be detected.
Figure: But here I can dose her through the mediport we installed on her when she arrived.
Figure: So no one will ever know … it will look like a natural death.
Close-up: The figure positions the mediport with her left hand while bringing up the hypo-injector in her right.
Figure: In just a few moments it'll be all over ...
Another, silhouetted hand has moved in from the right grabbed the figure's wrist.
Figure 2: ¡Parada!
