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.
BHP Forum No More [ May 1, 2021 ]
Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.
We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.
Seamus, Nicole (wearing a new Anysuit) and Buford in the concourse at the Circumular 2 spaceport. An overhead sign indicates "To L-5 City." Their luggage (Buford has a medium-sized case of her own) trails along at their heels.
Caption: The next afternoon:
Nicole: We're going back to L-5 City?
Seamus: Briefly. In four days there will be a high-speed liner departing for Mars, which would have been uncomfortably high-grav for me before ...
Seamus, Nicole and Buford. Seamus spreads his arms wide to show his new svelte body.
Seamus: But with my new -- ah -- sveltetude, I should be able to manage 78 days in five gravs with no trouble.
Nicole: I'm not sure I'm up to that, to tell the truth.
Seamus, Nicole and Buford stop to check their luggage next to the gateway. A large holosign announces HAUGHTY XL-5 Departing for L-5 City 15:30.
Seamus: That's why you will be getting a complete restorative physical, including two days at Aine's Spa.
Nicole: Sounds great. What about Buford?
Seamus, Nicole and Buford continue to their departure gate. Seamus flashes some tickets at a gate attendant.
Seamus: Buford will of course get a traveler's physical, and since Beltapes don't do implants I'll see if I can get her fitted with an earpiece. Will that be okay with you?
Buford: So long as I can remoof it whenefer I want to, t'at will be fine.
