Back in September 2019, Arachne Press were inspired by Lady Hale and her infamous spider brooch. They then realised that they were coming up to their 8th Anniversary in August 2020. What better way to celebrate than with a book of spider-related stories and poems?

Poets and authors from around the world responded in astonishing numbers to their call out for work that celebrates the spider, and in which the spider survives, triumphs, and provides a role model.

Arachne's writers have given the nod to Anansi, Robert the Bruce, Incy Wincy, Miss Muffet, and of course, Arachne herself, as well as discovering whole new worlds of spider influence and metaphor, with many stories dipping into Fantasy and Science Fiction.
A joy for any arachnid fancier, and anyone who can’t stand small lives being trampled, in prejudice or phobia.
