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

Panel 1
In the dining area aboard the Cissonius, Nicole and Pearl Arthur sit at a table as the android chef we saw a few strips back, Miz Beazley, is warming their coffee. They have desert plates, partly eaten, in front of them. Nicole has a melancholy look about her.
Caption: The dining deck:
Nicole: So I've often had weird dreams, but a few of them have been, well, prophetic.
Nicole: Like, when that fool Philbert ran out on me.
Panel 2
Closer 2-shot of Nicole and Pearl
Nicole: Or when those uniformed thugs on Luna caged and and tortured me.
Nicole: The night before I left L-5 City I dreamt of being kidnapped and held for ransom.
Panel 3
Nicole and Pearl
Pearl: You dreamt this would happen on Luna?
Nicole: No well, I'm not sure. The location in the dream was vague. But the faces and some of the other details ...
Panel 4
Nicole and Pearl
Pearl: Surely you don't actually believe in prophetic dreams.
Nicole: No-no, I'm a naturalist, through and through. But I can't honestly deny the dreams happened.
Panel 5
Nicole and Pearl
Pearl: So you were talking about a new dream you've had that's troubling you?
Nicole: Yeah it was it was like I was living through the Calamities.
Nicole: A great darkness spread all over everything, and every one.

Panel 6
Pearl is intrigued.
Pearl: The Calamities! That was four and a half centuries ago!
Nicole: Yeah, and I was on Terra, too. I think. Not sure what city.
Nicole: But people were starving, and there was rioting and martial law.

Panel 7
Pearl and Nicole
Pearl: I've seen the docu-vids, haven't you? It was a horrible time.
Nicole: Sure, I saw them. But well, the dream didn't feel like one of those vids.
Nicole: It was a lot more visceral a constant fear of immanent death.
Panel 8
Pearl and Nicole
Pearl: Lots of people have nightmares about the Calamities, after seeing the vids.
Nicole: Yeah, but this one is different.
Nicole: Because I kept hearing Seamus' voice telling me, 'When I say run, run!'
