The Court of the Spider Queen is the first short story installment of the Extraordinary Adventures of Captain Tripp Vaguely and the first book in the Fascination Chronicles; a humorous adventure series by author, Ziggy Tausend and his Clandestine Tales. It introduces the reader to the Captain and his cohort, Ghost-Tongue while forging the first step toward his next mysterious but surely impossible goal. Poking fun whilst simultaneously embracing the pulp format of bygone years, the Extraordinary Adventures of Captain Tripp Vaguely are quick journeys through the fantastic. An Edisonade-style steampunk genre infused with mythology and humor, the Court of the Spider Queen is but the opening of the door into a realm without boundaries. Further releases will follow soon, as Clandestine Tales (clandestinetales.com) prepares to carry the reader into vast worlds of excitement. Visiting Clandestine Tales also offers extra glimpses into the background of the characters and helpful information such as a Glossary of Terms to fill in the gaps between the here and now and the Victorian past.
