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.
Nicole, Buford and Ventura enter a large building under a sign reading (in both languages) "TUBE STATION"
Buford: Why don't we take our limo to Xin Rizhao?
Nicole: Because I had to send it back to the Po estate for Seamus to use.
Nicole: Besides, this should be interesting.
The trio stands in a short queue before a ticket kiosk.
Buford: Is t'at 'interesting' as in, 'oh, cool,' or as in, 'oh, crat'?
Nicole: Well, I _think_ it will be cool.
At the ticket kiosk, Nicole peers at the monitor listing fares, and puts some dime-sized coins into the receptacle..
Nicole: Hm. Three fares to Xin Rizhao, comes to 4 yinke.
Ventura: Do you need me to go with you? You could return me to the rental shop.
The trio walks away from the ticket counter, Nicole, holding a small plastic fob, blushes a bit as she answers Ventura.
Nicole: Well, Seamus paid for three days, so we should get his money's worth.
Nicole: And besides, we may have to stay overnight and ... I might have nightmares again.
