The Most Chaotic Midlife Crisis in Cosmic History
One lonely plumber.
One bad decision.
One trillion lives upended.
This is the story of Roy, the architect of an epic crisis that paralyzed the largest space station in the universe. What sounds like the work of an evil genius was anything but. Roy belly-flopped into a vat of bad ideas, birthing the ultimate pandemonium.
The aftermath created a legend, but the lunacy behind it remained a mystery. That is, until now. With the aid of footage and eyewitness accounts, this book reveals the truth behind the chaos.

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.
