Medb hErenn and her companions Morgiana the Thief and Mephitis the Apothecary are trying to get out off the Plateau of Leng, but the only way is across a deep chasm bridged by a web spun by a Leng Spider. Rumor has it that the spider offers safe passage to anyone who pays its toll, but will eat those who cannot. So the problem becomes, can they pay its price? This is a short story.
