Spider and I is a 16,000 word novella told in three parts: Jack is Almost Eight Years Old, The Number Thirteen, and Jack Comes of Age

From Jack is Almost Eight Years Old:

Jack held his covers close to his seven-year-old chin as if the blanket could keep the monsters away. Night was coming, and Jack was afraid. The shadow man only came at night, the darkest nights. Jack’s thin, light brown hair stuck in sweaty ribbons against his forehead. A television hum rose from the stairs and trickled into Jack’s bedroom. Rick was watching wrestling. He would smell of beer and sweat and a day’s grease from the shop. Jack could keep his eyes shut for a while, but only so long before fear nibbled away at the fringes of his seven-year-old brain.

This is a work of horror and includes profanity and violence.
