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.
IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]
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.
Carmen gets to her feet, while Diana looks up at her quizzically
Carmen: But we shouldn't talk out here. It's too exposed.
Diana: But, this is the place you suggested we meet.
Carmen leads Diana (with Wook in tow) away from the bench and towards the shops.
Carmen: Oh, we don't need to go far.
Carmen: We can just be a couple of friends going shopping together.
Diana: I guess that will be ok.
Diana, Wook, and Carmen in a gift shop, pretending to examine the wares.
Carmen: Try to look as though you're interested in the merchandise.
Diana: I've often wondered about shops like this ...
Diana: In a city where all of this stuff can just be ordered, fabbed and shipped on-line, why bother with storefronts?
Diana, Wook, and Carmen continue browsing.
Carmen: You miss the point of shopping.
Carmen: We evolved from hunter-gatherers. It's in our nature to poke around in physical places looking for goodies.
Diana: If I find a mastodon tusk in here I'll let you know.
