The souls trapped in the Dreaming are restless, seeking any help they can attain to escape from their "predeceased" state. Erzulie calls upon the spider-god of stories, Anansi, to assist her in unraveling the truth behind her own history. But can Anansi be trusted with any truths he finds?
Written by Nalo Hopkinson, award-winning author of Brown Girl in the Ring and Midnight Robber, and Dominike "DOMO" Stanton, artist of the acclaimed Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.
