This began as the second Anthology Contest on my Facebook page. There were so many amazing entries, though only 11 went in. I want to thank everyone for participating. I am extremely happy with the way it turned out!

I also want to thank Rene Folsom, who partnered with me on this anthology. Without her, it wouldn’t be out there! The amazing cover is all her as well as the interior design, and a million other things that needed to be done. I would have to say she had the most stressful job. This is the beginning of a very long business between us with the soon-to-be-revealed website for

Indie Style Press.

Review/Giveaway of ‘I Spider’ by Anthony Lance


Review by: Cynthia Shepp

I am going to start off saying that this is not the usual type of book I read but I am glad I did. 

I Spider is set in Australia. It starts off with a man you will later find out is Tony. He is describing waking up in a mental institution, feeling clearer than he has in years, and wearing a straightjacket…He thinks he has committed murder.

Tony was an odd one, functional for most of his life but aware that something wasn’t quite right with himself. He lived with his mother most of the time in a shed in the backyard but he did finally get his own house. He was a graphic designer that was out of work more than he was in, with brief, creative stints that seemed to be leading to bigger and brighter things, but always ended. He was also deathly afraid of spiders…or so he said.

Tony’s path through his mental illness intensified the older he got and the longer he went without treatment. He developed a hatred of a man named Paul and decided to plan and commit the perfect murder. Then the spider hoarding and madness really started to get bad. Tony’s brilliant plan was to use one of the most poisonous spiders there are, the Funnel Web spider, and milk it of it’s venom. This would be horribly dangerous and insane, but he manages. He then has to find and make the perfect murder weapon…a dart with two tips to mimic the bite of a funnel web. Tony loses most of his grasp on reality, becoming even more of a loner and the type of person that children make fun of, which they do on a regular basis. Tony’s descent into madness is spiraling out of control and the unthinkable happens…his plan really works. What happens afterwards? Will he spend his life locked up? Or will he in fact get a new life?

I Spider made me terribly afraid of spiders, made me rethink my urge to visit Australia, and left me slack jawed at the brilliance of the author. This book was fantastic. A true psycological thriller that sometimes made you laugh, sometimes horrified you, but always had you on the edge of your seat. The book reads like someone is sitting beside you telling you a story. You feel like you are in a conversation with Tony. His madness is so apparent in the telling of the story. It seriously made me FEEL his madness. The book jumped around subjects like you know someone who does not have all their marbles would talk, but it never got confusing. There was a realistic feel that was creepy as hell, especially with the pictures in the book, but I was assured it was fiction lol. Regardless of some of the things that Tony does, you still find yourself rooting for him, hoping he completes his task, and hoping that he can eventually get better. I also loved the way he talked. I went around my house saying ‘wanker’ in my head and laughing like an idiot for two days lol. I recommend giving I Spider a chance, even if it is not your usual type of book. I give it 5 stars.
