Nibblenom Deathtrap

Max shifts between parallel universes whenever he falls asleep. A curious affliction, especially for a nerdy teen trapped on a spooky spaceship.

Max awakes aboard a large and mysterious vessel. It’s dark, it’s smelly, and he’s bleeding from the head. His crewmates are nowhere to be found. Not the best way to start a day, and matters are made even worse when he begins to uncover the truth of his predicament.

* Haven’t read the books? No problem! Max and the Multiverse shorts are stand-alone tales that serve as entry points into the series. And if you’re hungry for more, this short also includes the first chapter of book one as a springboard into the saga.

$0.99 Kindle / $4.99 Paperback


“If you’re looking for a smart comedy, the Max and the Multiverse series will not disappoint. This short is packed with the same humor, action, and absurdity (think Douglas Adams) of the novels.”
Amazon Customer

“Fast-paced and fun. A quick glimpse into the multiverse and introduction to some great characters. Eat this as an appetizer and then get the full books for the main course.”

Max and the Multiverse shorts are stand-alone tales that serve two primary purposes. First, they are alternate doorways into the series, so you don’t need to have read the books in order to enjoy them. And second, they are opportunities to poke fun at other genres through the lens of science fiction. Nibblenom Deathtrap is a spoof of action horror.

Other shorts include The Item of Monumental Importance (epic fantasy) and Sparkle Pirate (speculative romance).
