    Also on the luxury liner is famous author Max Merriwell, who uses three different pseudonyms to write in three different genres. Susan looks forward to attending Max's lectures and hopes to meet the renowned writer. However, when the liner enters the Bermuda Triangle, a strange occurrence happens. Max's aliases come to life. One causes trouble; one befriends Susan, and one triggers the inexplicable.

    When the lines of reality blur, imagination becomes focused, which is the theme of Pat Murphy's novel. It enables the reader to forget the intellect and allow the wildest thoughts to flow into a reality. ADVENTURES IN TIME AND SPACE WITH MAX MERRIWELL needs a warning label not to venture with Max Merriwell into the Bermuda Triangle unless you want to enjoy a satirical Twilight Zone ride.
