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 [Max and the Multiverse] to Douglas Adams, who he manages to channel with witty, snarky, and offbeat humour.” – Keith Lane, TG Geeks
“[Max and the Multiverse] is one of the finest pieces of sci-fi satire I have ever read. Anywhere. Bar none.” – Eric Michael Craig, Rivenstone Press
