Sensation (Spectacular Fiction) - Nick Mamatas

"He wasn't a person," Raymond said, "He was a wax dummy. God knows what."

 

"He was a sentient being," Julia said. "What's the definition of human: 'Not full of intelligent spiders'?"

 

Raymond nodded emphatically. "Yes, well. Yeah. Pretty much by the definition of the word human, spiders in a man suit are disqualified. Christ, Julia. What the hell? What the holy blue fuck is coming out of your mouth?"

 

Raymond's not being very understanding, but I suppose he's had a very stressful past few hours.

 

Assuming I'm not too exhausted by the end of the workday, I might be able to finish this today. It's been an interesting read, but I have some issues with the world-building. For one thing, if the wasps are only in Julia, how is it that they're seemingly able to influence other peoples' behaviors?
