Tommy | 3 comments I'm looking for a book that is about a human-like figure with the face of a spider? I read this years back so my memory is very vague about it. but all I know is that this creature goes around a town killing people.

Tab (tabbrown) | 4999 comments Tommy, a few more questions:

How many years ago did you read this book?
Was it geared towards adults, teens, or children?
What genre: science fiction, horror, fantasy?
Remember anything about the cover?

Jennifer Graham | 6 comments Might it be "Love Is the Plan, the Plan is Death" by James Tiptree? It's a short story but it's about a spider-like creature with quasi-human intelligence.

I don't think that's the one unfortunately, but thank you!!

I read it around 8 years ago in middle school. The book was written for teens but it was pretty graphic. I would say it would be in the science fiction genre. All I remember about the cover was a dark figure with sharp teeth. Any help would be great.

Tommy, are you still looking for this?

Possibly The Black Spider, a novella from the 19th century? Not YA, though.
