Stop. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. No, don’t put it down. It’s too late. They’re watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you’ll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it’s too late. You touched the book. You’re in the game. You’re under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why? You just have to trust me. The important thing is this: the drug is called Soy Sauce, and it gives users a window into another dimension. John and I never had the chance to say no. You still do. I’m sorry to have involved you in this, I really am. But as you read about these terrible events and the very dark epoch the world is about to enter as a result, it is crucial you keep one thing in mind: none of this was my fault.

Summary

Stop.

You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands.

No, don’t put it down. It’s too late. They’re watching you.

My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you’ll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it’s too late. You touched the book. You’re in the game. You’re under the eye.

The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why? You just have to trust me.

The important thing is this: the drug is called Soy Sauce, and it gives users a window into another dimension. John and I never had the chance to say no. You still do.

I’m sorry to have involved you in this, I really am. But as you read about these terrible events and the very dark epoch the world is about to enter as a result, it is crucial you keep one thing in mind: none of this was my fault.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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
“Mixing free-wheeling absurdist horror, great one-liners and wonderfully funny, if gory, set-pieces, the novel was first posted online in 2007 and gained a cult following. It may be a farrago of nonsense, but it’s also unputdownable thanks to great narrative pace and its pair of likeable layabouts. Imagine Vonnegut channelling Philip K. Dick channelling Hunter S. Thompson. A twisted delight.” Guardian (London)
“When it’s funny, it’s laugh-out-loud funny, yet when the situation calls for chills, it provides them in spades.” Kirkus Reviews
“The rare genre novel that manages to keep its sense of humor strong without ever diminishing the scares.” Onion AV Club 
John Dies at the End…[is] a case of the author trying to depict actual, soul-sucking lunacy, and succeeding with flying colors.” Fangoria
“David Wong is like a mash-up of Douglas Adams and Stephen King…‘page-turner’ is an understatement.” Don Coscarelli, director, Phantasm I–V and Bubba Ho-tep
“David Wong has managed to write that rarest of things—a genuinely scary story.” David Wellington, author of Monster Island and Vampire Zero
