Marie | 1 comments I read a book 2 times from the library and have forgotten the name and author. I think it was published around 2000-2010. The book had around 8 scary stories in it and the only one I remember had a family going to a new house/cabin, and sooner or later theres a bunch of spiderwebs and there was giant spiders. I believe there was also spider webs in the car when they tried to leave? The protagonist was a male teen. I think the book was around the first or last quarter of last names on the library book shelves. It was all fiction and I think the cover was soft cover. the last time I read it was around a year ago, but the library redesigned the teen bookshelves since then cause of covid (I only knew the general area where it was on the bookshelf) the first time I read it might have been around 5-6 years ago

Marie, what do these short stories have in common? Is the genre horror? Single or multiple authors? Cover art?

James | 11 comments The Ash-tree by M.R. James is about a family that is accosted by giant spiders. It's old though (1904) but tends to get republished in anthologies.
