Comes his fear but finds a twisted sexuality in its place His attraction to the spider affects all areas of his life and changes everything he thought he kne I began this book with zero intention of reading the entire thing any time soon I just wanted a taste and then would get back to my currently very busy life I’ve been in the middle of reading a constant flow of submissions for an anthology I am compiling so any extra reading time was strictly devoted to thoseokay and I got Stephen King’s new anthology Bazaar of Bad Dreams that I’ve been having a fling with But certainly no time right now to devote to anything else However when I stepped into the sticky web that is Arachnophile I soon found myself bound within its pages unable to break freeThe bizarre world that Betty Rocksteady weaves for us in her tale is one riddled with over sized spiders and victims of racism as they struggle to find their place in a human world One of these eight legged creatures happens to move in next door to the book’s arachnophobic protagonist and his girlfriend The girlfriend encourages her man to be inviting to their new neighbor and soon his feelings toward the thing take a very unexpected turn that Rocksteady has a very strange and unsettling way of presenting as something that could almost be comprehended by the reader I feel dirty just typing thatArachnophile is bizarro but it’s lighthearted in its execution—an easy read It doesn’t feel like some poetic acid trip that only the author can truly enjoy There is a certain claustrophobic and routine like feel reminiscent of Lynch’s Eraserhead though don’t let my analogy fool you into thinking this is some slow paced nightmare that only some will get and others will hate If you’re not already a fan of this subgenre Arachnophile is a great gateway to help you find your wayIf I have one complaint about the book it’s that the synopsis gives too much away I would have liked to find out on my own that the story takes a twisted romantic turn I think not initially knowing where it was headed would have made this book a page turner than it already isChad Lutzke Horror Novel Reviews

ArachnophileHatred and desire collide when the girl next door is a giant spiderAlex’s arachnophobia may be old fashioned but he’s able to live a life of relative pea A love story like no other Taking place in a world in which spiders as in normal find em in your garden type spiders albeit much larger are granted full citizenship Arachnophile merely touches on the “bizarro” dystopia of its universe writ large Instead the true story is much myopic in scope And while this novel subverts the notions of a traditional relationship cutting them up and splaying them out in all their gory glory what really shines through is the protagonist dilemma and how he overcomes it Taking a nod from every rom com ever made we have a love triangle of sorts but unlike the comedies from which its structure is based this is darker and weirder than you’d ever imagine Still there’s a plot here a very illuminating plot at that and this strange journey of self discovery pays off with a climax that is as disturbing as it is poetic I enjoyed this book immensely
