The year is 2578 and immortals control the world. Brutal wars and endless genocide have reduced mankind to a handful of mountain tribes. In order to survive, humans infiltrate the eternal society as transient spies, hoping to uncover a means to regain control of the planet.
Jonas is a young transient deep undercover in downtown Seattle. He lives underground, works at night, and drinks his daily blood rations, just like any normal eternal. He is a model spy, but also an apostate among extremists, torn between ideologies (as well as lovers) from either side.
Allegiances are strained to the breaking point when Jonas bears witness to a violent death that rocks the eternal civilization to its core.
Transient is a terrific book. It’s a gem that shows how much raw talent lurks within the Indy Writing Community. And I heartily recommend it.Brent A. Harris
Max is a teenage gamer with an exceptionally dull life. That is, until a bizarre accident leaves him with the ability to shift between parallel universes, but only when he falls asleep. Every time he wakes, he confronts a distressing new reality, be it talking cats or ’80s pop culture.
But then one day he awakes to a hyper-advanced version of Earth where humans have colonized space. Determined to escape his mundane existence, Max and his cyborg cat venture into the black, only to entangle themselves in an intergalactic conflict.
A ruthless criminal overlord, a corrupt planetary system, an ornery walrus, a secret society of super nerds, and a pair of plucky orange lesbians round out this crazy, clumsy adventure.
Wheeler dedicates this book to Douglas Adams, who he manages to channel with witty, snarky, and offbeat humour.Keith Lane
Max’s misadventures through the multiverse continue, this time with more snark. Ross, Zoey, and Perra return for another wild romp, along with several new faces that only a mother could love.
Having survived the perilous plunge into Hollow Hold, Max emerged as an unlikely hero and earned a coveted title as Perra’s grease monkey intern. He and the crew swing by a colossal space station for resupply, only to be targeted by unknown assailants.
The resulting shenanigans take them to a roaming planet inside a creepy nebula inhabited by one of the strangest beings in the universe. All the while, Max bumbles his way through bizarre new realities, everything from transparent skin to a world without Bob Dylan.
Max and the Snoodlecock did something that I didn’t think was possible–it made me laugh out loud more than Max and the Multiverse did.Goodreads
It was absolutely a wild romp, and I loved it…Jennifer Amon
Progress Peek: I am currently working on Book Three of Max and the Multiverse with an estimated release of late 2018. The first draft is nearly complete and the story has taken a hard turn into crazy town. Last updated: 4/6/2018.
