Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Zeke 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.
At the front counter of an establishment named BesTech Scientific Gear. Murphy is dealing with the store clerk (male standard human), who is looking down at her console display and repeating back Murphy's order. Nicole is standing close-by.
Clerk: Okay, that's one Dickerson Mark III magnetic resonance scanner, one Wilson molecular spectro-analyzer, one laser scalpel, 10 sampler syringes, two pairs of skingloves and ... four forceps?
Murphy: That's correct.
Two-shot of the clerk and Murphy.
Clerk: Very good, ma'am. I'll have these fabbed for you in about 15 minutes.
Clerk: The amount due will be 35 augrams, 12 sils.
Murphy and Nicole confer while the clerk is away filling the order. Murphy is holding up a rucksack.
Nicole: Won't it look suspicious carrying all that stuff into the mortuary?
Murphy: I'll be carrying them in this rucksack I bought down the causeway.
Murphy and Nicole.
Nicole: And the rucksack won't raise eyebrows?
Murphy: I can wear it on my back and hide it in my holo-field. Just like you do with your carry-all belt.
