- Extract from "Side Project" from Book 1 of the HPA Saga


A fan-fiction story set in the FFE universe around the year 3307. The main story arc involves the theft of a Huge Plasma Accelerator (HPA) and Imperial politics. Various side stories occur along the way, involving fringe characters and stories.

It is written through the point of view of its multiple authors, whose own characters unwittingly get caught up in what was to become known as the "HPA sarrghhaa"
