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.

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.
In the alleyway with the toughs and the dead guy. Paramedics are putting the toughs on stretchers, while an ME examines Ma-Bo Nu. Observing it all is the trench-coated Chief Inspector Ho Rai-Chiu. Another investigator, Lu Richang, stands with him.
Lu: Looks pretty clear to me, Chief Ho.
Ho: Tell me what you think, Richang.
Two-shot, Lu and Ho
Lu: Larceny has had those three on their radar for months. Suspected android-theft ring.
Ho: And the deceased?
Lu: I've had my people ask around ...
Looking up from Ma-Bo still on the ground, to Lu and Ho looking down at him.
Lu: Ma-Bo Nu comes ... came here from Xin Xiang every few weeks, to frequent the brothels ...
Lu: … the ones with android doxies.
Ho: So, he had a thing for fake flesh, huh. Occupation?
Another two-shot of Lu and Ho.
Lu: Apparently he's a trust-fund baby. Nephew of the late Po Xu-ke.
Lu: Likely had his dalliances here to avoid embarrassing the family back home.
Ho: Looks like his uncle will be scolding him in the after-life now.
