Strength in Numbers - Devilfish Review

The spider . . . boy's best friend? Or man's worst enemy? 

Hmm, maybe reading "Strength in Numbers," now up at Devilfish Review will help you decide.

If nothing else, it'll make you think for a moment the next time you're about to step on - or save - that spider crawling along the floor....

    1. I hear you. I don't have a phobia, but I'm not their biggest fan either.

  4. That is an awesome story. Very nice.

    I talk to spiders too. It goes something like this, "We have a truce. You better not be here when I get back." The spider then tried to hid behind my shear drape, so I could still see him. I said, "You're not hiding very well!!." He eventually figured it out and left.

    1. Thank you!

      I think you need to work that spider conversation into you Camp NaNo novel somehow. :)

  7. Loved your story!

    I have to admit that I'm a spider-killer. I have a good friend who captures them and brings them outside. I don't think I could do that. *shudder*

    1. Thank you!

      For me, it depends on how big and how creepy the spider is.

  8. Gives new meaning to that quote, "Oh, what a tangled web we weave..." Perfect, creeps-up-on-you horror, Madeline!
