Publisher Description

From Jason Pargin, the New York Times bestselling author 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.

Warning: 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 stimulates 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 won't even feel it when it breeds. And it will breed.

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.

"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

"Kevin Smith's Clerks meets H.P. Lovecraft in this exceptional thriller… [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

Amazing

David Wong is hilarious, disgusting, and scary in his writings, but this book is so hard to put down. As a squeamish young 20-something, I would cringe and squeal then turn the page to read what was next. Be prepared to think a lot about reality, big philosophy questions, and boners.

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!

Amazing

I never thought anything could top "John Dies at the End" but this book manages to accomplish that. Very few works of fiction can simultaneously be both horrifying, and hilarious, and David Wong manages to repeat the incredible feat again in "This Book is Full of Spiders." The book is also much more than it appears. It dwells on some deep topics, and manages to disguise the philosophy lesson as entertainment. Read it.
