“The Valley of Spiders” by H.G. Wells
Socialist, futurist, fabulist, H.G. Wells is one of the founding fathers of science fiction, but sf was not the only genre he wrote. “The Valley of Spiders” is a great, pulpy adventure story about three men riding into a valley in pursuit of a half-caste girl who has ignited the lust of the group’s leader. What they find in the valley is creepy and deadly and if you have a fear of spiders you really don’t want to read the story. It’s online here.
