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.
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.)
The quartet at their table in the restaurant. They have drinks but their food has not yet been served.
Nicole: So who are these 'heirs' we're going to meet at this party?
Seamus: Tong Xie Po and Ma Bo Nu.
Two-shot of Seamus and Ventura. Seamus glances sideways at Ventura as he speaks. Ventura seems oblivious.
Seamus: They are heirs to the estate of the late Po Xu-ke, an old friend of mine.
Seamus: Po made major advances in life-extension technology, where he made his fortune.
The quartet at their table. Seamus looks downcast.
Nicole: Kind of ironic. Why didn't he do a rejuvenation, instead of letting himself die?
Seamus: I ... I don't know. His explanation was ... too cryptic
Nicole lays a hand on Seamus', in a gesture of sympathy.
Nicole: I'm sorry for being insensitive.
Nicole: It must be difficult, a man of your years, losing the friends of your youth.
Seamus: You don't know the half of it.
