Tim Sweeney, one of Jacksonville’s finest garbage collectors, finds a dead house spider under his bed and does what any red-blooded American man would do when stoned – he decides to try to bring it back to life. Of course, he manages to end his own in the process but finds himself unwittingly adopted by an ancient Native American goddess known as Grandmother Spider. This union plunges Tim headlong into a world of myth and legend for which he is ill prepared and that is ill prepared for him. He is, as it turns out, the catalyst for the end of the world. Half of the universe seems to relish the thought of destruction while the other half is trying to avoid it at all costs. Tim is simply trying to survive long enough to get a date with a hot librarian – well, that and keep from inadvertently blowing everything up.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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.
