There and Back Again by Pat Murphy sort of writing as Max Merriwell

This is a delightful book! Not only is it a good space opera -- good plot & twists, fine characterization -- but as you read along you find the story lightly paralleling Bilbo's. There's even a puzzle to work out!

Highly recommended.

The Max Merriwell thing is a little odd, though. The only place his name turns up is on the title page and on a couple of editorial pages at the end. If she wants to use that for a psuedonym, why not actually use it? There's really no sense of Max until her explanation at the end.
