Max is a teenage gamer with an exceptionally dull life. That is, until a bizarre accident leaves him with the ability to shift between parallel universes, but only when he falls asleep. Every time he wakes, he confronts a distressing new reality, be it talking cats or '80s pop culture.

But then one day he awakes to a hyper-advanced version of Earth where humans have colonized space. Determined to escape his mundane existence, Max and his cyborg cat venture into the black, only to entangle themselves in an intergalactic conflict.

A ruthless criminal overlord, a corrupt planetary system, an ornery walrus, a secret society of super nerds, and a pair of plucky orange lesbians round out this crazy, clumsy adventure.

MAX AND THE MULTIVERSE is a young adult science fiction novel. The story will appeal to fans of quirky space adventures such as Martin Leicht and Isla Neal's MOTHERSHIP and Douglas Adams's THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY.

In times of chaos, there are those who fight for money, for power, or just to survive. In feudal Japan, they were Ronin. In the post US Civil War, they were desperadoes or hired guns. In the chaotic times of the collapse of human civilization, they are men, women, and aliens without shelter or succor. When no one else will take a stand, they stand for themselves. They are deserters, murderers, pirates, and worse… they are the Renegades.

Buck Johnson: Dragon Wrangler
by Wyatt McLaren
$0.00, 12 pages, 3.9 out of 5.0 (4 reviews), #155 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > First Contact
Buck Johnson, along with his slow-moving and slow-thinking sidekick Skeeter Evans, currently plies his trade as a dragon wrangler on Terul and is busting out a bunch of dracs for the repulsive Terullian Karposh. But when an unruly Red Kraken throws Buck, events take an unexpected turn. And Buck and Skeeter, with a little help from Snort Jones, right some wrongs and give Karposh his come-uppance . . . while still meeting their contractual obligations.

A wild mix of Fantasy, Action/Adventure, Western, and Science Fiction, “Buck Johnson: Dragon Wrangler” is a new twist on the Space Western and a rollicking ride across the vagaries of a dragon wrangler’s and his sidekicks’ lives on the planet Terul. Think of "The Good Old Boys," "The Rounders," and a little bit of "Lonesome Dove" all rolled up together and cast into space.

The Menagerie
by Matthew W. Gerring
$0.00, 370 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 Customer Reviews), #37 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Hard Science Fiction
The Menagerie is what passes for the ruling council of the galaxy, a galaxy known to some as Milky Way. It is made of groups of sentient (and incidentally paranoid) machines that have mostly evolved from biological ancestors and in many cases exterminated them. Two of these hyper-intelligent machines, one of mysterious descent and another evolved from gung-ho giant mantis shrimp-like animals, embark on a dangerous journey of exploration to Andromeda. What they find there shakes them and their travelling companions to the core and presents a host of problems for the savant machines running things to ponder.

Ingo Furr is a programmer working at the Facility in Oxfordshire in England. He goes to a presentation on a novel kind of mathematics and decides to program his own neutral network on the new quantum clusters at the Facility. This turns out to be a life changing event as a chain of things not entirely of his making overtake him and most of humanity in a desperate struggle for survival.
