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.

I really enjoyed this re-read of David Wongs debut novel from 2007.

This is another selection from the Albany Public Library Summer Reading Challenge. (Theme: "Out of this world.") The audio for this book was over 14 hours long. I often found myself thinking, "Henry James would call this book "a loose and baggy monster." Come to think of it, the book actually f...
"There's nothing new under the sun."If you're an insecure creative person, you'll hear this phrase quite often. Friends will try to build you up, because there's no easy (or friendly) way for them to say, "Maybe storytelling isn't for you, you know? Perhaps take up model-building or lint-collecting?...
A fantastically misanthropic horror tale, laced with bouts of obscene and obscenely funny comedy that heightens the absurdity of the entire thing. A sort of horrific Bill & Ted for the Millennial generation. Listen, the comedy isn't going to be to everyone's tastes; I've seen many people who've di...
A silly and very male horror-comedy along the lines of Shaun of the Dead. Some evil Lovecraftian monsters are planning to take over the world and, in fact, all of the worlds; all that stands between them are John and Dave, two small-town video-store employees. Perhaps it's the way I read it - in s...
