I will be tabling in Minneapolis at Convergence SF/F Con this weekend! Come on by!
Weekend was filled with relaxing. Just kidding. It ended up being full of errands and cat number THREE really sick to the vet. I’ll be happy Wednesday when the Little Dee layout is to the printer and I get on a plane to Minneapolis. Finally relax. Maybe.
There was a discussion on Friday’s strip about relative time distortion issues, but, they are not actually an issue. There are no relativity effect. I should put that in the strip, but it was mentioned in the Higgs Drive description:
Further tests demonstrated that the HtNEI distorted the actual fabric of “dimension alpha” in such a way that the space in front of the HtNEI was pleated (for want of the actual mathematical term) in such a way that the clipper only interacted with a small fraction of the actual distance between origin and its terminus. FTL travel, without apparent relativity effects, was a side-effect of the function of the HtNEI.
