When We Were The Spiders (4.3)

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Three displaced men share secrets in the comfort of the Blue Frog Tavern, but when talk turns to Refuge's secrets, they're compelled to go on a journey together. Where are they headed? “Out through the wall, to the marshes.” Not exactly happy, one asks "What’s out there that we need to see in the middle of the night?”
Story by award-winning writer and editor Marty Young. Cover Art by Will Jacques.

An interesting tale in the collection. An incredibly suspenseful story that seems to stand out from the rest. The characters know Refuge isn't the idyllic place it's made out to be, and Young explores this in depth. Perhaps we're all the monsters in our own stories? Who knows? We're definitely all spiders.

When a story starts 'skin like wrinkled midnight' in the first sentence, and it's written by award-winning writer-editor Marty Young, you know you're in for a treat. Short and intense, this story is perhaps on of the most significant in the Refuge Collection to date, going a step deeper into the psyche of the refugee to investigate the idea that when we want to do the right thing to reveal the atrocities being inflicted on people, even when we make sacrifices to reveal those truths, sometimes we can be as dark and unforgiving as our oppressors. A significant tale, well worth the read.
