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.
