WHERE TO BUY
“It is controlled chaos, it is sheer lunacy, and it is one of the most original and hilariously funny books I have read in a very long time.”
– Ben Ragunton, TG Geeks (Full Review)
“Puki’s story has found a most satisfying champion in Mr. Wheeler who manages to do justice to this most interesting tale.”
– Geoff Habiger, Artemesia Publishing (Full Review)
“I love the premise of this book, and since I have read some of the other books in this universe (even though this is a completely stand-alone concept), I really enjoyed that there were Easter Eggs to find.”
– Eric Michael Craig, Rivenstone Press
“I could honestly read 10 more volumes about the peanut gallery that populates Durangoni Station and never get bored. Highly recommend!”
– Amazon Reader
“I’ve recently come to the conclusion that a new genre of sci-fi is needed. It should be called zany sci-fi. This book fills that description with a resounding splash. It is hilarious from page one to the end.”
– Amazon Reader
“I laughed a lot and loved uncovering the puzzle of Roy’s misadventure.”
– Amazon Reader
My name is Zachry Wheeler and I’m a science fiction novelist based on Earth. I was chosen to serve as translator for all terrestrial editions of Puki Horpocket Presents, a literary series beloved throughout the universe.
It’s been a great honor.
It’s also been super stressful.
Decoding an alien tongue is daunting at a baseline, let alone through the prestigious lens of Puki Horpocket. He is renowned for his unique blend of commentary, interviews, and dramatic depictions. My job is to stick the landing for human readers. I sincerely hope that I do his words justice, but admittedly, I sometimes feel like a toddler translating Orwell.
The Durangoni Space Station is home to countless species and cultures, and thus, countless lexicons. Some things are universal, like beer. Other things are regional, like atmo barriers on artificial oceans. Some things are truly horrifying and do not warrant translation, regardless of their pop culture equivalents.
I did my best, but aliens be weird, y’all.
Puki Horpocket tales are chock-full of excitement, debauchery, and blatant disregard for delicate sensibilities. Fair warning: the language is lewd and the characters are crude, so keep your wits inside the vehicle and enjoy the ride.
Puki Horpocket Presents is a loosely connected spin-off series from Max and the Multiverse, in that it takes place on the massive Durangoni Space Station from book two. In the aftermath of a frantic confrontation with an ornery snoodlecock, Roy must clean up the mess left by Max, Ross, Zoey, and Perra.
