Lock’s Galactic Mess is a work of fiction in the science fiction, action, and adventure subgenres, and forms the opening novel of the Lock Ferguson vs. The Aliens book series. It is best suited to mature readers and contains explicit language throughout, as well as violence and situations of a sexual nature. Penned by author Jack Cullen, the story follows Lock Ferguson, a middle-aged janitor who, thirty years ago, had a bizarre encounter with an alien. Now, that same alien is back and intends to use Lock as a superweapon to destroy Earth. With the help of his quirky friends, Lock must harness his newfound powers to thwart the alien's plans and save the planet.
Author Jack Cullen's writing is witty and filled with humor, making this sci-fi tale a thoroughly entertaining read that fans of the likes of Firefly and Star Trek are likely to enjoy. The characters, especially our loveable janitor Lock and his misfit friends, are endearing and relatable, penned with a keen sense of distinctive dialogue and plenty of witty back and forth. The blend of science fiction elements and comedy creates a unique and engaging narrative that keeps readers hooked from start to finish, with smooth pacing and inventive plot twists that are unpredictable. This book is the perfect escape for anyone looking for a lighthearted yet thrilling sci-fi adventure that combines the excitement of an alien encounter with the humor of everyday life. The work is imminently relatable because of its realistic core which really grounds the action and makes the payoff all the more spectacular when things get weird. Overall, Lock's Galactic Mess is a good start to what promises to be a fun and quirky series, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
