Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
The base of the Macapá Beanstalk. A Manager, this one a lovely young Latina, is standing by, flanked by two Arsociates, as Wayne walks into the frame, followed by the android carrying his luggage.
Manager: You're just in time, Mr. Bobinardi.
Wayne: Of course I am. Are these my valets?
The Valets take the luggage from the Android. Wayne doesn't look at them, but looks at the Manager.
Manager: Yes, Excellency. They are called 'Dean' and 'Jerry.'
Wayne: They will do, let's get going.
Wayne and the Manager sit in comfortable seats, while the Valets sit on what are essentially boxes built into the floor. They are in a large elevator car with tall windows so they can see the Earth falling away beneath them.
Wayne: I daresay this ride takes longer than the trip from Brussels. But the view is spectacular.
Wayne stretches back in his seat and looks lustily at the Manager. She looks back at him with a forced smile.
Wayne: My dear, since we have this time together, have you considered joining the thousand-mile-high club?
