Coming (really) soon: Alpha Max
Maximilian Tundra is about to have an existential crisis of cosmic proportions.
When a physical duplicate of him appears in his living room, wearing a tight-fitting silver lamé unitard and speaking with an English accent, Max knows something bad is about to happen. Bad doesn’t cover it. Max discovers he’s the only human being who can prevent the end of the world, and not just on his planet! In the multiverse, infinite Earths will be destroyed.
Personally, Max thinks the multiverse is in big trouble, because he can’t even keep his toenails clipped on the regular, let alone stop the apocalypse. His only “allies” are a race of manic pixie aliens and dozens of other versions of himself; and let’s face it, both groups are annoying as heck!
From award-winning author Mark A. Rayner, Alpha Max is a silly and serious spoof of the science fiction and superhero movie trope of multiple realities. Fans of the humorous science fiction of Douglas Adams and the black humor and satire of Kurt Vonnegut will love this dark comedy that will make you think as well as laugh.
Must read 🏆
“Funny, yet deep, this is definitely worth venturing into the multiverse for.” –Nisha Ward, Reedsy Discovery Reviewer
Must read 🏆
“Rayner’s signature humor, absurdity, dark comedy, and satire, all wrapped into a great story.” –Scott Fabirkiewicz, Reedsy Discover Reader
“I highly recommend Alpha Max to readers who enjoy character growth, deep thinking, and penis jokes. What’s life without a scrotum shaped, inter-dimensional spacecraft?” –Michael Shelton, Goodreads
Also from Mark A. Rayner
Don’t panic, it’s only Mark A. Rayner, award-winning author of SF, absurd fiction and the occasional screed on the problems with time travel novels. When not writing about the multiverse and manic pixies, Mark teaches at Western University, in Canada, which definitely doesn’t have a beaver problem.
His new book, Alpha Max, is a dark comedy with absurd undertones.
He writes in the genres of science fiction, humorous science fiction and dark comedy. When not working on the next novel, he pens short stories, squibs and other drivel. (Some pure, and some quite tainted with meaning.)
He does all of these thing while being Canadian and owning cats.
Later, there will be cake…
