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.
Praise for Max and the Multiverse
“One of the finest pieces of sci-fi satire I have ever read.”
—Eric Michael Craig, Rivenstone Press
“In my opinion, Zachry Wheeler is the heir apparent to Douglas Adams.”
—Ben Ragunton, TG Geeks
“A roller-coaster of a trip, fast-paced and filled with excitement.”
—Geoff Habiger, Readers’ Favorite
“A delightful tour de farce! Brilliantly absurd and absurdly brilliant.”
—Victor Acquista, Podfobler Productions
“Holy smokes! Wheeler is the funniest living author I’ve read.”
—S. Shane Thomas, Science Fantasy Hub
Max and the Multiverse Shorts are stand-alone adventures that serve as backdoors into the series, so you don’t need to have read the books in order to enjoy them.
In addition, they are opportunities to poke fun at other genres through the lens of science fiction. The current crop includes:
The Item of Monumental Importance (epic fantasy)
Nibblenom Deathtrap (action horror)
Sparkle Pirate (speculative romance)
Hiss Bot Hank (mercenary teams)
Slug Puppet (metafiction)
* As a special bonus, each short includes the first chapter of book one as a springboard into the saga.
