Book Three of Max and the Multiverse

A wise tiger once said that you should never shift on a world that you don’t want to inhabit for the rest of your life. Good advice, especially when visiting a jungle planet full of lizard bears.

Max learns an extraordinary truth about his furry companion while stranded on said planet, but there is no time to dilly-dally because he and Ross need to find Zoey and Perra, who have been captured by a familiar foe.

The race is on to reunite the crew and unlock the mysteries of the Banjo Ferret.

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

Author Notes

Max and the Banjo Ferret is book three in the Max and the Multiverse series and follows our ragtag group of misfits through another wild adventure. One thing I learned while writing this story is that raising the stakes in a saga like this is a welcome yet daunting challenge. In the comedy world, there is a fine line between delightfully absurd and WTF. I think I managed to walk that line, but I will leave it for you to decide.

My one and only disclaimer would be that Max and the Multiverse is a satire above all else. Many characters and settings are hyper-parodied to poke fun at genre tropes. In fact, the entire series can be viewed as Russell Crowe in a clown suit shouting “Are you not entertained?!”

But if you do have a burning question, please feel free to contact me. This series is all about parallel universes, where anything can be explained with a needlessly extravagant backstory. I love hearing from happy readers and answering those questions is the most fun I have as an author.
