Three Arachnids In A Warship (to say nothing of the human)
Jay is an aristocrat, a philanthropist, and a giant spider.
She also has only two years to live, which is disappointing. Her doctor has ordered rest and relaxation, so a spin around the galaxy in the old warship seems ideal. For the next week, Jay must try to relax in spite of her friend Oliver, who may or may not be a smuggler, her human companion Sarah who cannot resist playing practical jokes and her intense but extremely attractive friend Bainbridge. On her way she will encounter bigoted venomous snakes, vicious pirates and a very rude serial killer. Thankfully, these are easy to deal with. The real trick will be keeping the secret behind her treatment from her companions.
Michael Coolwood writes feminist Science Fiction and Fantasy. His characters are driven by a desire to make the world a better place but also struggle with their mental health. This is partly because Michael respects passionate, caring people, and partly because cuts to the health service in his country have ensured he can barely leave the house due to his swamp of health problems.
