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.

SubscribeStar Update: All Systems Go! [ Feb 11, 2019 ]

SubscribeStar update: Not yet [ Jan 31, 2019 ]
The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is open, although the site seems to be going through some growing pains.
For that reason I'm advising Patrons looking to switch over, to wait a little while longer. I subscribed to a couple of channels there and there are some billing issues. If they get cleared up within a week, I'll announce the ALL CLEAR and invite everyone unhappy with Patreon to come over.
The Transcript For This Page
Li, Nigel, Buford, Nicole and Murphy are standing in a metal-walled room. They are all wearing jumpsuits. Li is next to a console with his hand near a control interface.
Li: Our target is on Terra, which has a surface gravity of 9.8 gravs.*
Li: This building has adjustable electro-gravity, which can simulate Terran gravity …
Caption: *1 grav = 1 meter/sec/sec
Li touches the controls, and his knees bend slightly. Nigel and Buford fall onto their knuckles, Nicole staggers slightly. Only Murphy seems unaffected.
Li: … thusly.
Nicole: Feek! I thought Venus was bad!
Li holds up an ordinary chicken's egg.
Li: Not only will you feel four or five times heavier than you're used to, things fall faster, with sometimes dramatic results.
Li: Allow me to demonstrate ...
Li drops the egg on the floor, where it goes splat. Nigel, Buford and Nicole are wide-eyed. Murphy remains unperturbed.
Buford: Holy shuck!
