Zachry Wheeler, Science Fiction Novelist



a MAX and the MULTIVERSE short

Max shifts between parallel universes whenever he falls asleep. A curious affliction, especially for a nerdy teen tasked with a holy quest.

Max awakes to a wondrous realm with dragons, elves, and a highly munificent genie. However, the lands have been corrupted by a dark and deadly magic. Max and his merry crewmates must save the kingdom by braving an endless barrage of fantasy tropes.

* Haven’t read the books? No problem! Max and the Multiverse Shorts are stand-alone tales that serve as entry points into the series. And if you’re hungry for more, this short also includes the first chapter of book one as a springboard into the saga.



“I did laugh out loud on several occasions. Truly, this short story is another worthy of the Douglas Adams mantle.” —Keith Lane, TG Geeks

The Item of Monumental Importance is an ode to all that is geek and nerdy in each of us, focused through the lens of a fantasy parody and laden with every trope under the heavens.” —Geoff Habiger, Artemesia Publishing

“There are a lot of flirtings with different fandoms in this story, and it is done excellently. This is a great, fun read and I recommend this one to anyone who likes sci-fi or fantasy satire.” —Tony Lindblom, SF Author

“Zachry Wheeler writes with the charm and whimsy of Douglas Adams and the clever satire of a pop culture science fiction aficionado!” —Amazon Reader


Max and the Multiverse shorts are stand-alone tales that serve two primary purposes. First, they are alternate doorways into the series, so you don’t need to have read the books in order to enjoy them. And second, they are opportunities to poke fun at other genres through the lens of science fiction.

The Item of Monumental Importance is a spoof of epic fantasy. Other shorts include Nibblenom Deathtrap (action horror), Sparkle Pirate (speculative romance), and Hiss Bot Hank (mercenary teams).
