Judging the cover and its title you'd expect this to be a straight shoot. John's a character that dies by the end, right? Well, yeah, but stories never go that smoothly. David Wong presents a madcap adventure through the life of two losers who continuously seem to fall into trouble just because of where they live. Whether it be strange demonspawn from worlds unknown or messengers sent from beings beyond our comprehension, the characters in this book react accordingly. Scream and run. It's a crazy story that's both nihilistic in its message and hopeful at the same time. Give it a read and see what you think.
A new street drug promises an out-of-body experience, and its users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human, in this genuinely scary story (David Wellington, author of "Monster Island").
