Meet the Author

Christopher W. Clark was born in the deep south and raised by Yankees, which is only slightly less frowned upon by the locals than being raised by wild dogs. The dichotomy of his upbringing led him to question many of the conventions in life such as why there are ten hot dogs in a package and only eight buns and what precisely is one supposed to do with the remaining meat sticks. Hoping to uncover the underlying cognitive processes that presented these types of issues to humanity led him to first study the human psychological condition. Not long after that he realized that humans were more trouble than they were worth and decided to study the nonhuman technological condition. Although this was a definite improvement, it did little to settle the disquiet within. Antacids helped some, but nothing could truly quell the thirst for answering the ‘what if’ and ‘why’ questions that to this day keep him up at night. 8 Legs Up is his first novel.

I enjoyed this book. Very unusual almost twisted.

Spent all morning reading this because I got too wrapped up in the plot to put it down. The supporting characters weren't too developed, but I did enjoy the protagonist and the novelty of an average white guy getting plunged headlong into Native American beliefs.

I have to say that I only read about 20 pages of this book. It was well written. I would have liked to see actual chapter breaks instead of asterisks. Interested to see where the book was going, but the spider, among other things, was creeping me out, too much. Really, not my kind of book. (Should have guessed by the title.)

Some really entertaining writing going on with this book.   The combination of native american mythology with a story line in the current day is interesting and fun.    The main character is quirky and a bit sarcastic.  I enjoyed it.
