Max and the Banjo Ferret

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.

“For me, the best part of Max and the Banjo Ferret — aside from the mighty Tim, The Destroyer of Worlds (long live Ferretianism!) — was the Terramesh. [It] creates a wonderful backdrop to the craziness that takes place and makes this story stand up there with greats of science fiction inventiveness like Asimov, Niven, and Heinlein.”
Geoff Habiger, Artemesia Publishing

“Just when you think that the author can’t top the last book, here he comes with an even better book. Just so creative.”
Amazon Customer


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 comedy series above all else. Many shifts are played for laughs and are not meant to be taken seriously. If you trip over a “What about this?” question, I want you to imagine Russell Crowe in a clown suit shouting “Are you not entertained?!”

But if you do have a burning question, please feel free to reach out to me directly. This series is about parallel universes, where anything can be explained with a needlessly extravagant backstory. In fact, answering those questions is the most fun I have as an author.
