Earthman Jack vs. the Ghost Planet
Jack Finnegan only has to worry about dealing with school bullies, suffering through detention with his homeroom teacher, and getting noticed by the girl of his dreams... at least until an army of evil aliens invade Earth. Suddenly, this teenage slacker finds himself at the center of a galaxy-spanning conflict - where the lives of everyone on the planet are in jeopardy, soldiers use Quantum Physics to become superheroes, and the enemy uses some mysterious form of magic to make themselves practically unstoppable. The secret to ending the conflict and saving the universe may lie in a powerful ancient spaceship, which it seems can only be flown by Earthmen. Now, Jack and a rag-tag group of allies must overcome impossible odds, defeat an unkillable enemy, rescue the princess of the galaxy, and save the universe from a threat more terrifying than any it has ever faced. Can this underachiever rise to the occasion and become the hero Earth needs? The fate of all life in the galaxy may rest in his hands.

"Kadish's Earthman Jack looks to fill the Harry Potter sized hole fantasy fans have had since 2012." --Christopher Saens, ReviewFix.com "I loved this book like I love chocolate. The more time that passes from the last page flipped, the more my love for it grows." --Jess Orso, SciFiMafia.com "Earthman Jack vs. The Ghost Planet by Matthew Kadish is a fast paced, science fiction tale which is an action packed cinematic read." --Michael Smith, the Guardian Liberty Voice "This was a really great read that I didn't want to put down." -MichaelSciFiFan.com "Titles like Ready Player One have interceded into a fine niche between video game universes and novels through pop culture, Easter eggs and even game design. It appears his Earthman Jack is taking it to the next level." --Patrick Mulhern, Lorehound.com "Matt Kadish is the best selling author you've never heard of and quite frankly you are missing out." --Donovan Longo, LatinTimes.com "This book is a must read. It embodies everything I loved from my childhood in this genre and as familiar as it was, it was also unique and had me cheering from my readers chair!" --Hazel Goodwin, Craves The Angst Reviews
