The Spider Spinners of Lyrtania
Another picture from my steampunk Madam Mesmerelda series.  read more ...

“They let the women work with those…things?” Captain Sommers asked, dabbing his forehead with a handkerchief.  The Lyrtanian heat was not unexpected, but the humidity of the jungle seemed to magnify it an hundred fold, and it left the merchant-man sweating uncomfortably in his shirt-sleeves.

“Oh, it’s the spiders that specify that bit of the arrangement, my good man,” Doctor Herschel said with a smile.  “They’ve some peculiarity where they’ll only bond with females, and once they do, the women are accepted into the hive as if they are spiders themselves.”

“Pardon me, doctor, did you say ‘hive’?”

“Quite so, my good man.  The beasts are rather peculiar in that respect as well.  Though I’ve noted no physiological differences in the dead specimens I’ve been allowed to examine that might suggest a sort of caste system like, say, a honey bee or ant, they most certainly cooperate the way a hive insect might, and have a definite social order to their activities.”

“Are all of them so large?”

“No.  Most of the spiders get perhaps as large as a tea-saucer, when measured across the width of their abdomen.  Only one in a thousand will form the bond, but those that do reach some thirty two hands, from leg-tip to leg-tip.”

Captain Sommers had to swallow against a sudden dryness in his throat as one of the massive things emerged from the cave, some twenty feet away.  The woman tending it followed shortly after, talking to it in the strange, sing-song of the Lyrtanian tongue.  She laughed as if the spider had responded, and stroked the creature like one might a family hound as it skittered up one side of the cliff-face.

“Thirty two hands?”

“Supposedly the Matron’s creature is bigger still, but I’ve never been granted the privilege of meeting it.”

Midwinter Ball
Another finally finished piece from the Madam Mezmerelds's Digest Series.  This one is fully titled: "The Governor's Midwinter Ball".  Here is the story:

The ball was more opulent than Naureen had expected, considering the rumors of how poor the cotton harvest had been this year.  She wondered where the Governor had bled the colony to pay for this absurdity, as he certainly would not have funded it out of his own pocket.  She supposed the fact that it was also a masquerade was intended to add an element of mystery and excitement to the affair, but if that was the intent, then it was utterly wasted on the young debutante.

Half a hundred couples danced and whirled on the marble dance floor in the Grand Ballroom, and Naureen could name all of them with half a glance.  What foolishness it was to pretend that someone could not identify the whole of the would-be aristocracy of San Belle just because they couldn’t make out their cheekbones.  There was Master Cilus, pretending no one knew he was dancing with Madame Temaire while his wife fumed silently at her table.  Sir Trant had disappeared a half hour ago with Jewellen and not returned.  Doubtless their “secret” affair would be the primary subject of the mindless gossip tomorrow.

“May I have this dance?”

An unfamiliar baritone interrupted her boredom, and it took her a moment to realize the fellow extending his gloved hand to her had been talking to her.  He was broad across the chest, but his coat fit him perfectly.  Naureen found her voice a moment after he had helped her to her feet and onto the dance floor.

“I didn’t say ‘yes’,” she complained, her voice too breathless to hold any real irritation.

“She that is silent is taken to agree…” he replied with a smile, and took her waist with a firm grip.

Naureen’s retort was swallowed by a modest shriek as he pulled her into the dance.  He was strong, and his balance and footwork were flawless.  It was all Naureen could do to keep pace through the intricate twists and turns of his lead.  All too soon, the quartet was stilled, and Naureen returned to her seat.  Her partner bowed slightly, before turning to depart.

“A moment!” She managed, “might I have a name?”
“Hardly in the spirit of the event, my lady,” he replied over his shoulder, and walked briskly toward the veranda.

Naureen exhaled sharply, then gathered herself up and followed.
