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.
The Clerk and Murphy are seated at a table in a night-club. The Clerk has a frozen margarita; Murphy has her usual lubricant. The Clerk is a bit intimidated by Murphy's stoicism.
Clerk: So … um … tell me about yourself?
Murphy: Until 85 days ago I was the bound concubine of one of the richest men on Huoxing. Po Xu-ke made his fortune developing longevity treatments, but then allowed himself to die.
Now the Clerk is more intimidated by who Murphy is.
Murphy: Afterward I was manumitted and have been traveling with Seamus O'Murchadha, the celebrated physicist and inventor.
Murphy: Along with his assistant, Nicole Oresme, the famous 'Sun-Diver Girl.'
Murphy: What about you?
The Clerk is on the spot.
Clerk: Oh! I … uh …. well, I manage the Quantum Express office here on Ganymede, as you know.
Clerk: And … uh … in my spare time I write about local politics for an altvlog …
Clerk: … um … I guess that's not as exciting ...
Murphy looks at the Clerk coolly.
Murphy: What do you say we skip past this awkward warm-up and go have the sex you really wanted anyway?
Clerk: Can't I at least PRETEND to be seducing you?
