Rise of the Spider Goddess
by Jim Hines
Nakor the Purple wanted nothing more than to stand around watching lovingly overdescribed sunrises with his pet owl Flame, who might be a falcon, depending on which chapter you’re reading. This is Nakor’s story, written in 1995 and never before shared with the world. (For reasons that will soon be painfully clear.) Includes more than 5000 words of bonus annotation and smart-ass commentary.
