Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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.

The Transcript For This Page
Juan and Radoj.
Radoj: But I suppose you didn't come by to discuss my problems.
Juan: I want to talk about the last case you worked on. I hope that's not a problem.
Radoj: Well, that depends. We've been friends for a long time, Juan.
Juan and Radoj. Radoj is looking a bit nervous now.
Juan: You were my mentor for years. And we've had each others' backs for decades after that.
Radoj: That's right. But I need your solemn word that you will keep your visit here and everything I said confidential.
Juan: All off the record, of course!
Now Radoj is looking darkly serious.
Radoj: OK, first, just for the sake of my conscience … drop this case. I don't know how much you're being paid, but it's not worth it.
Radoj: The folks you'll be running up against are powerful, and clever, and they play for keeps.
Juan smiles wryly.
Juan: If you don't know how much I'm being paid, how do you know whether the risk is worth it?
Radoj: They managed to kill a 170-kilogram combat-gynoid AND make her back-up disappear. Do your own risk-reward assessment.
