@vance It's somewhere between a "sex-drugs-and-mind-control" space opera throwback, and a psychologically complex LGBTQ coming-of-age story about overcoming trauma through the power of scientific invention and found family.
My MC is 23, a spaceship navigation engineer who just graduated university, and while he's putting off deciding between two job offers, he gets involved in his brother's biological experiments...
...With the help of the MC's girlfriend and their best friend, the four of them end up inventing something that catches the attention of basically the galactic government, which is slowly turning fascist.
Over the course of the 5-book series, he accidentally helps cause a war, and has to go through a whole *lot* of weirdness to end it.
There's battles and such, but mainly it's about love, and science, and ethics, and sex.

@erosdiscordia my favorite “auteur story” is that when Welles was faced with a similar situation with Kane (blank check basically) any time a studio exec showed up on set he would get out a baseball and gloves and toss the ball around with the crew until they left. Now, Welles was eventually run out of Hollywood and died in effective obscurity, but he made *his* movie.

This week’s best read: “We know what their world looks like: abundance for the few, precarity and impoverishment for the rest of us.
But there are other futures, other worlds as yet unmade. We have only to choose ours, and to fight like hell for it.”
