‘Where Spiders Fear to Spin’ Now Available!


Books & Boos Press is proud to announce the release of Where Spiders Fear to Spin, the terrifying new novella from Bram Stoker Award® Finalist Peter N. Dudar. Acclaimed artist Morbideus Wolfgang Goodell illustrated the book.

Where Spiders Fear to Spin tells the tale of former soap opera star Sadie Mills, a woman literally haunted by her past whose final days are filled with horror. Her daughter resents taking care of her, her former lovers are dying off one by one, and her dead husband’s vengeful ghost has returned from the dead to drag her to hell.

We’ll be celebrating the release of the book at Anthocon in Portsmouth, New Hampshire (www.anthocon.com), June 5–7, 2015. Both Dudar and Goodell will be available on Saturday, June 6, at the Books & Boos’ tables to sign copies of the novella.

The book is available in paperback or e-book wherever books are sold. Visit one of these links to buy your copy today!

Cover Revealed for ‘Where Spiders Fear to Spin’


Books & Boos Press is excited to announce that Maine artist Morbideus Wolfgang Goodell has completed the initial design for the cover of Where Spiders Fear to Spin. The cover incorporates several facets of Peter N. Dudar’s novella, including the ghost story element, the overall tone of the piece, and, of course, a spider web.

“Morbideus’s design exceeded all of our hopes and expectations for the cover,” said Stacey Harris, managing editor. “He really knocked this one out of the park!”

Where Spiders Fear to Spin will debut at Anthocon in Portsmouth, NH (June 5–7, 2015). Dudar is a past Bram Stoker nominee (for A Requiem for Dead Flies), and Where Spiders Fear to Spin is his third novella. One of the characters, Abby Cunningham, is based on a real girl of the same name, who won the chance to be in Dudar’s book at a Lisbon Community School P.T.O. fundraiser. In addition, Dudar is generously donating all of his royalties to the Lisbon Community School P.T.O.

Goodell describes his style of art as “visual requiem.” His designs are well known throughout the horror community. His most recent works include the cover illustration and design for Dark Art by Tim Waggoner (2014) and contributing to the interior art for Mister October, Volume I: An Anthology in Memory of Rick Hautala (2013).

“Morbideus Goodell’s art is haunting and evocative. He was our top choice to illustrate this book,” says Stacey Harris, managing editor for Books & Boos Press. “We’re so happy to have him on board for this project, and excited to be able to work with him.”

Goodell previously illustrated the cover of another Dudar novella, The Angel of Death (2013). His art is on display at http://www.facebook.com/morbideuswgoodell.
