A Web of Black Widows

(2010)
And Other Stories of Love and Loss
A collection of stories by

 
In these six provocative tales, Scott William Carter takes the reader on a journey to places where love and loss intersect: a grieving tattoo artist makes a cross-country trip with a pregnant woman on the run from her disturbed husband . . . a mysterious artist finds a woman washed up on the beach and feels compelled to paint her . . . a young man who made a disastrous choice in wife is forced to crash weddings with his ghostly bride so she can remain on Earth . . .

Reading these and three other stories, you will be intrigued, moved, and troubled as Carter's clear and engaging prose takes you on a guided tour of the darker corners of the human psyche. But as he writes in his introduction, "There's hope in there, too. There has to be. Otherwise, why write at all?"

"Scott William Carter makes it look easy. But if anyone thinks that writing good, intriguing fiction with a clear, plain voice is easy . . . Well, they should try it sometime." -- Chizine.com

"While it may be small in size, A WEB OF BLACK WIDOWS is as powerful a package as dynamite." - Gnostalgia

"The title story is a stunner." - Fright.com

Carter's first novel, The Last Great Getaway of the Water Balloon Boys, was published by Simon and Schuster in 2010. His stories have appeared in Asimov's, Analog, Realms of Fantasy, and other major publications.
