I read it years ago, as it was released online, but I'd love to get the novel in one piece to read again.

Awesome Sauce!
Frank Nagy

John Dies at the Beginning would be an awfully short book (and probably not too interesting)

Gotta love the sauce...

The first book is better than the second, and I have high hopes for the movie.

JDATE was a great movie, I perchased the book as soon as i heard that Don C. (creater of phantasm) was making it into a movie. He is the absolute best, and i owe a lot of my horror influences to him. Thanks for this contest. I would love a copy of a poster. none the less, just glad that this forum was set up for people to read and promote JDATE!

I've lent my copy of the book to everyone I know. If I had a second copy, I could spread the sauce twice as fast.

I enjoyed the movie on Amazon before it was released in theaters. It's a fantastic book, the perfect mesh of adventure, immaturity, and twistedness.
Rosanne Trask
179. Jason Golden
I would have this book's babies, if such things were not frowned upon in polite society. The movie was excellent, as well, but I think it would just not call me back in the morning.

Read the book and the sequel, saw the movie when it was out to rent, saw the movie in LA twice (going again on Tuesday). Don Coscarelli said that if everyone saw the movie three times and bought four copies of the DVDs they'd make the sequel into a movie on opening night; so SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY DON COSCARELLI. (Also, there should be a kickstarter for it; might help raise funds. I know I'd donate.)

A few years ago for my mother didn't know what to get me for Christmas so I had her buy John Dies At The End for me. Not until after Christmas did I realize what a dick move it was on my part to ask for this book. See my father had recently passed away and his name was John. Oh was a phenomenal book! This and House of Leaves are my two all time favorite books!

I recieved my poster and book today for this constest, thank you the book was in fine shape but the poster was damaged and ripped, the mail man folded up the envelope and shoved it in my mail box and since the poster was flat you can guess what that did to it, is there anyway to get a replacement maybe in a tube.
