Praise for "This Book is Full of Spiders" "Kevin Smith's Clerks meets H.P. Lovecraft in this exceptional thriller that makes zombies relevant again... From the dialogue to the descriptions, lines are delivered with faultless timing and wit. Wong never has to reach for comedy, it flows naturally with nary a stumble... the most pertinent story of the genre since George Romero's "Dawn of the Dead.".. a tighter, more concentrated read than "John Dies at the End.".. David Wong (Jason Pargin) is a fantastic author with a supernatural talent for humor. If you want a poignant, laugh-out-loud funny, disturbing, ridiculous, self-aware, socially relevant horror novel than "This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously Dude, Don't Touch It" is the one and only book for you." -SF Signal "The comedic and crackling dialogue also brings a whimsical flair to the story, making it seem like an episode of AMC's "The Walking Dead" written by Douglas Adams of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." ...Imagine a mentally ill narrator describing the zombie apocalypse while drunk, and the end result is unlike any other book of the genre. Seriously, dude, touch it and read it." -"Washington Post" "[A] phantasmagoria of horror, humor--and even insight into the nature of paranoia, perception, and identity." -"Publishers Weekly, " starred review "Violence, soy sauce and zombie survivalists abound in this clever and funny sequel to "John Dies at the End" (2009). One of the great things about discovering new writers, especially in the narrow range of hybrid-genre comedic novels, is realizing that they're having just as much fun making this stuff up as you are reading it. Sitting squarely with the likes of S.G. Browne and Christopher Moore, the pseudonymous Wong (Cracked editor Jason Pargin) must be pissing himself laughing at his own writing, even as he's giving fans an even funnier, tighter and justifiably insane entry in the series.... The humor here is unforced and good-naturedly gory. Anyone who enjoyed the recent films "The Cabin in the Woods" or "Tucker & Dale vs. Evil" will find themselves right at home. An upcoming (cult?) film adaptation of "John Dies at the End" promises to lure new readers. A joyful return to the paroxysms of laughter lurking in the American Midwest." -"Kirkus"Praise for "John Dies at the End ""The rare genre novel that manages to keep its sense of humor strong without ever diminishing the scares; David is a consistently hilarious narrator whose one-liners and running commentary are sincere in a way that makes the horrors he confronts even more unsettling." --"The Onion AV Club """John Dies at the End" is like an H.P. Lovecraft tale if Lovecraft were into poop and fart jokes." -"Fangoria ""Sure to please the "Fangoria" set while appealing to a wider audience, the book's smart take on fear manages to tap into readers' existential dread on one page, then have them laughing the next." -"Publishers Weekly .".".strikes enough of a balance between hilarity, horror, and surrealism here to keep anyone glued to the story." -"Booklist ""A loopy buddy-movie of a book with deadpan humor and great turns of phrase...Just plain fun." --"Library Journal ""You can (and will want to) read JOHN DIES AT THE END in one sitting." -BookReporter.com "Wong blends horror and suspense with comedy--a tricky combination--and pulls it off effortlessly." -FashionAddict.com "It's interesting, compelling, engaging, arresting and--yes--sometimes even horrifying. And when it's not being any of those things, it's funny. Very, very funny." -January Magazine "This is one of the most entertaining and addictive novels I've ever read." -Jacob Kier, publisher, Permuted Press "The book takes every pop culture trend of the past twenty years, peppers it with 14-year-old dick and fart humor, and blends it all together with a huge heaping of splatterpunk gore.... Successfully blend[s] laugh-out-loud humor with legitimate horror." -i09.comFrom the Publisher:
Originally released as an online serial where it received more than 70,000 downloads, "John Dies at the End" has been described as a "Horrortacular", an epic of "spectacular" horror that combines the laugh out loud humor of the best R-rated comedy, with the darkest terror of H.P. Lovecraft. The book went on to sell an additional 60,000 copies in all formats. As the sequel opens, we find our heroes, David and John, again embroiled in a series of horrifying yet mind-bogglingly ridiculous events caused primarily by their own gross incompetence. The guys find that books and movies about zombies may have triggered a zombie apocalypse, despite a complete lack of zombies in the world. As they race against the clock to protect humanity from its own paranoia, they must ask themselves, who are the real monsters? Actually, that would be the shape-shifting horrors secretly taking over the world behind the scenes that, in the end, make John and Dave kind of wish it had been zombies after all. Hilarious, terrifying, engaging and wrenching, "This Book Is Full of Spiders", the next thrilling instalment, takes us for a wild ride with two slackers from the midwest who really have better things to do with their time than prevent the apocalypse.
