HISS BOT HANK
a MAX and the MULTIVERSE short
Max shifts between parallel universes whenever he falls asleep. A curious affliction, especially for a nerdy teen fighting an alien scourge.
Max awakes to the horrors of war. Fire fills the sky as bolts of plasma rip through the battlefield. He tries to gather his bearings, but his new body is annoyingly limited. As frustrations mount, he gets targeted by a mechanized menace.
* 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.
WHERE TO BUY
“I love seeing how utterly over his head Max is sometimes, and how he manages to work it out. Well worth the time to read this one.” —Eric Michael Craig, Rivenstone Press
“I loved the A Team growing up, so this hit me in all the right nostalgia places. Everything is larger than life and over the top, which is kinda the point.” —Amazon Reader
“I am so delighted to have another Max and the Multiverse story to make me laugh! Highly recommend!” —Amazon Reader
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.
Hiss Bot Hank is a spoof of mercenary teams. Other shorts include The Item of Monumental Importance (epic fantasy), Nibblenom Deathtrap (action horror), and Sparkle Pirate (speculative romance).
