Paul Noren hates himself for never confessing his love to Peter Nichols, a war-weary mecha pilot sent to Mars via the Phobos Initiative, the first manned mission outside the Earth-Moon system, where he is now completely out of reach.

On a return trip to Earth, Peter collapses from illness right as he touches down, the unwitting victim of the illegal actions of a scientist who was part of the Phobos Initiative.

As if that weren’t enough, Axel is also distracted by the Pilot in charge of the mission: Ivan Daletsky, the greatest Titan pilot of the age, whom Axel has wanted for a long time and isn’t likely to ever get.

Then the treaty is stolen, and time is rapidly running out, and it will take all the ingenuity Axel can muster to prevent a war.

Deadline Extended: GEEK OUT Deadline is now April 30

Geek Out Submission Call

The deadline for LT3’s Geek Out collection call has been extended! Stories should be submitted by April 30, 2014. Click here for all details.

Geek Out — A Trans* and Genderqueer Collection Call — Gamers. Computer nerds. Baking enthusiasts. Fanfic writers. History buffs. Cosplayers. Music, TV, painting, cars, make-up—we all geek about something, and nothing quite rivals the passion displayed by geeks for what they love. There’s no limit to what can be geeked over, and no rules about who is allowed to geek about what—and the harder someone tries to put such rules in place, the harder they get knocked down.

In the spirit of true geekery, and the limitless possibilities of it, Less Than Three Press invites you to submit your stories of trans* and genderqueer geeks doing what they love best.
