'‘Spider Town’, Frank Moorhouse’s first published short story, appeared in Overland #29, autumn 1964.
'We’ve rescued it from the archives, because Frank is keen for it to find new audiences, and also because there is one change he wishes he could make. We’ve given him the opportunity here, by republishing the story below, along with his marked-up correction.
'We’re also giving readers the opportunity to edit the story – to tweak, comment on, alter, transform, to even create new endings and back stories.' (Introduction)
