Me vs. the Multiverse: Pleased to Meet Me (Hardcover)
On Our Shelves Now
What if you suddenly met someone who's you--only better? That's what happens in this hilarious new series for fans of Stuart Gibb's Moon Base Alpha and quirky sci-fi animated shows like Rick and Morty and Regular Show.
It all starts with a note folded into the shape of an origami octopus: "Hi, Me. Yes, you. You're me, and I'm you." If you believe this and the other origami notes that follow--which middle schooler Meade Macon absolutely, positively does NOT--the concept of parallel dimensions is true, and there is a convention full of alternate versions of Meade waiting for his RSVP. It's got to be a joke.
Except . . . the octopus is an origami fold Meade thought he invented. And the note writer has a lot of intel on him that nobody else should know. I mean, he's told his best friend Twig a lot about himself, but he's definitely kept mum about that time he sleepwalk-peed into his Lego container when he was six. Could Me Con be a real thing? And why does the origami stalker want him to go so badly anyway?
About the Author
Alternate versions of S. G. WILSON from parallel Earths have had many jobs, such as a centaur trainer (Earth 399), a court jester for Warlord Thud of the Wasteland (Earth 45), and a line dancer in Fortnite: The Musical (Earth 82)! But the S. G. Wilson of this Earth has mostly been content to write stuff and spend time with his family in Austin, Texas.
