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

Bok explains it all:

Bok: In the 11th Century of the space age, the city of Novo Paolo, a.k.a. ‘bubbleopolis,’ is a shining jewel of free humanity.

Thirty million souls inhabit this artificial, prosperous world, unburdened by kings, or presidents, or anything resembling a monopoly state.

Of course, no state doesn’t mean no law. Here, the law is a matrix of contractual agreements, based on a covenant all residents are asked to sign.

Like the old English common-law, our law develops organically from decisions rendered by reputable arbitrators, one dispute at a time.

Sure, there will always be those who resort to violence to get what they want. This is why self-defense is regarded as not only a right, but a duty.

Murders, rapes and robberies are fairly rare here, as those who do such things are quickly removed from the population. or existence.

Now, one might reasonably ask, ‘without a state, how is the law enforced?’ Or more to the point, how are disputes peacefully settled?

To answer that question, please allow me to tell you a story about how one very major dispute was settled recently.

I like to call this story, ‘The trial.’
