Now with never before seen pages from David Wong's next book Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits.
From the writer of the cult sensation John Dies at the End comes another terrifying and hilarious tale of almost Armageddon at the hands of two hopeless heroes.
You may have a huge, invisible spider living in your skull. THIS IS NOT A METAPHOR.
You will dismiss this as ridiculous fear-mongering. Dismissing things as ridiculous fear-mongering is, in fact, the first symptom of parasitic spider infection -- the creature secretes a chemical into the brain to stimulate skepticism, in order to prevent you from seeking a cure. That's just as well, since the "cure" involves learning what a chainsaw tastes like.
You can't feel the spider, because it controls your nerve endings. You can't see it, because it decides what you see. You won't even feel it when it breeds. And it will breed. So what happens when your family, friends and neighbors get mind-controlling skull spiders? We're all about to find out.
Just stay calm, and remember that telling you about the spider situation is not the same as having caused it. I'm just the messenger. Even if I did sort of cause it.
Either way, I won't hold it against you if you're upset. I know that's just the spider talking.

This goes from dark and creepy to absurd to hilarious all on one page. The story told as filtered through the protagonist is vividly descriptive while using language that isn't colorful or poetic, but visceral and authentic. The horror is executed well and revelations and twists are engrossing and often grotesque. David is a character that doesn't really like anybody, save his close friend John, his Girlfriend Amy and his dog. But he knows he's the one who has to save humanity from otherworldly evil so humanity can meet destruction on our own terms.
I loved John Dies at The End, and This Book is Full of Spiders is a brilliant follow up.
First- read John Dies at the End which is smart, funny, action packed and utterly hilarious. It's the first book o the series and its like an NC-17 version is Sean of the Dead (because they're both comedy/horror). I couldn't put it down. I plowed through John Dies at the End in three days laughing the entire time. I didn't think David Wong could top it, but This Book Book is Full of Spiders is better. Wong's style & story telling has grown but this book is more thought provoking while maintaining the suspense and humor. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just leave with I highly recommend reading both books.
A creepy roller coaster.
Amazing. I don't want to spoil, so I'll just say that the story keeps moving and engages you from the get go. You can't put the book down. Get it, read it, and fall in love with the grotesque and horrifying town of Undisclosed!
