Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases we can’t wait to get our hands on.
The follow up to the horrifying and hilarious This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don’t Touch It once again follows our heroes John and Dave as they investigate a shapeshifter who is snatching local children.
Wong’s latest book will hit shelves just in time for Halloween: October 3, 2017!
New York Times bestselling author David Wong takes readers to a whole new level with his latest dark comic horror What the Hell Did I Just Read, set in the world of John Dies at the End and This Book is Full of Spiders.
John Dies at the End‘s “smart take on fear manages to tap into readers’ existential dread on one page, then have them laughing the next” (Publishers Weekly) and This Book is Full of Spiders was “unlike any other book of the genre” (Washington Post). Now, Wong is back with the third installment of this black-humored thriller series.
While investigating a fairly straightforward case of a shapeshifting entity from another dimension snatching local children, the gang realize there might actually be something weird going on. Together they will navigate a hilariously convoluted maze of illusions, lies, and their own incompetence, attempting to uncover a terrible truth they’d be better off not knowing.
Wong is coming off his foray into science fiction with the award-winning novel Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits, which is now in development as a TV series and prompted critics to declare that Wong, “will be remembered as one of today’s great satirists” (Nerdist).
