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.
IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]
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.
Back on Huoxing: At the entrance to a building with a sign marked (in both languages) "Escrow And Exchange House", Seamus waits by the entrance, as Peng-Bo Shen approaches surrounded by a phalanx of muscular, business-attired men.
Peng-Bo: Sorry I'm late, Dr. Murchadha.
Seamus: That's quite a retinue you've brought with you, Mr. Peng-Bo.
Seamus and Shen stand face to face, with Shen's retinue forming a semi-circle around him, facing outwards.
Peng-Bo: Oh, this is just my security team.
Peng-Bo: They accompany me anywhere I go in public.
Seamus: I see.
Closer shot of Seamus and Shen. We can still see one or two of the guards.
Seamus: I suppose this is a wise precaution, as your adoring public may resent your designs to disarm them.
Seamus: But aren't you worried about the zringer I'm wearing?
Shen gestures for Seamus to enter the building with him.
Shen: The weapons ban I'm proposing isn't for people such as you and me.
Shen: That's just for the commoners.
