The Web of the Golden Spider

by Frederick Orin Bartlett

The hero of The Web of the Golden Spider is a New England theological student, rather a new type for a book of adventure. And his adventures are truly thrilling. They begin in a closed house on Beacon Street. Boston, and end in the same house, after a detour through the mountains of South America. A revolution in a petty South American state; a buried treasure; a New England maiden with the Sixth Sense; a beautiful Queen who is half Spanish but talks like an American boarding-school girl (she belongs to the aforesaid petty State) ; a millionaire yacht owner, and a sort of seafaring American Mulvaney, are some of the things and people our hero has to deal with. Not to forget a mysterious dual-identity heathen Priest; a terrible South American prison; . . . Rats . . . in the prison we mean . . . and many more things too exciting to mention out of their orderly sequence in the novel.

Author of the Day

David Niall Wilson
David Niall Wilson has had experiences in real life that can rival anything you would find in a novel. It is a good thing too, as the stories he collected while walking these strange and interesting paths has shaped him as a writer. David is not only the author of numerous novels and short stories, but also runs his own print, digital and audio publishing company. This makes him a busy man indeed, but we did manage to catch up with him to find out more about his novel, Nevermore, his fascination with history and some of his most unique travel experiences.
