Quantum Vibe

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.

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On Sale! [ Oct 31, 2019 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

How does a society without a formal government deal with crime and criminal conspiracies? In the far-future space-city known as Bubbleopolis, they do it with a mixture of wit, grit, and a culture based on rolling up one's sleeves and doing what must be done. Diana Martelli, a recent arrival, likes to call it compassionate individualism.

Big Head Press announces the release of the latest graphic novel in the QUANTUM VIBE series: Château Périlleux, in which young Diana is tasked with finding out who killed a supposedly un-killable android -- and uncovers a conspiracy which shakes the very foundations of the city and its culture.

Available now direct from Big Head Press.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Technicians working on a nuclear weapon.
Caption: 'It was an open secret that Israel had a stockpile of nuclear weapons, as was revealed by Mordechai Vanunu, a technician at the Negev Nuclear Research Center.
Caption: 'Israel maintained a policy of 'nuclear ambiguity,' neither confirming nor denying reports that its stockpile ranged in size from 40 to 400 warheads.'

Panel 2
Map of the Middle East, hilighting the cities of Mecca, Medina, Jerusalem, Najaf, Karbala and Qom.
Caption: 'But for Farnswoth's purposes, he only needed six, one each for Islam's holiest cities: Mecca, Medina, Jerusalem, Najaf, Karbala and Qom.
Caption: 'But he was also concerned with the Sufi Islam holy cities of Konya, Turkestan, Uqba, Harar, Alexandria, Touba, Ajmer, Pakpattan and Sylhet.'
Panel 3
Close-up of Theo, now in his 60s, looking evil.
Caption: 'Farnsworth understood that one of the 'Five pillars of Islam' was the hajj a required once-in-a lifetime pilgrimage of all Muslims to the Masjid al-Haram mosque in Mecca.
Caption: 'The destruction of Mecca would, he reasoned, destroy the foundation of Islam and the faith of its adherents.
Panel 4
Theo at the Israeli control center, looking suspicious.
Caption: 'The other cities were included in Farnsworth's scheme because they might become alternative locations for the hajj.
Caption: 'His vengeance-obsessed mind reasoned that if the hajj were made impossible, Islam itself would crumble and fall.'
