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.

    More soy sauce! Please! I’m completely addicted! Seriously though, I loved this book and need more of them.
  • Great read

    Honestly I preferred the first book, John Dies at the End. It doesn't matter, this book is still a great read. The tone of the book is a little different, more serious, less off the rails crazy. But it is still fast paced and a lot of fun.
  • I love this book...hate the spiders.....

    By Mccrackles19
    This is a must read if you enjoyed the first book, it's just as messed up and crazy as the first!! It starts out kinda slow I must admit but it quickly turns into a page turner and it's very hard to put down after you start getting in to the good stuff. I would recommend this book to anyone who gets easily bored with regular books, I'm one of those people ( ironically i love to read ) so it is refreshing to have a book I can't put down. But seriously read this book....and prey you don't get infected ;-)

  • Amazing

    By Pancake Cargo
    I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one. I read through it in two days. I also found myself checking for spiders every couple days haha. The next one can't be released fast enough. If you like be scared and/or laughing, this book is a definite buy.
  • Yes

    By Haley f
    This book needs to get optioned into a movie ASAP.
  • I didn't want this book to end

    By bpetruzzo
    For real funny and scary, borderline even touching. More than once while reading I ineffectually spoke to the book out loud. Reading is advised.
  • Stupendous

    By ZuHone
    This book is witty, crass, philosophical and spiritual. It will make question what it means to be alive, what it means to be human, and what solidarity means.
  • Excellence in my kind of literature

    By travieeeeee
    This is the second book of David Wong's series. And it's every bit as good as John Die's at the End. If you enjoy horror and have that special taste in humor then this book along with the first are epic story's in my opinion.
  • Very underrated!

    By CCCCCCCCChris
    There aren't many books I can read without getting tiresome, but I find that when I start reading this, I seem to not be able to put it down. I give this book and it's prequel five stars out of five for being the best two books I have ever read. I look forward to seeing another book in this series in the future.
