About the author and the story:

Andrew J. Wilson is a freelance writer and editor who lives in Edinburgh. His short stories, non-fiction and poems have appeared all over the world, sometimes in the most unlikely places. Appearances include, but are not limited to: Year’s Best Horror StoriesGathering the BonesProfessor Challenger: New Worlds, Lost PlacesWeird TalesShoreline of InfinityStar*LineScotia Extremis: Poems from the Extremes of Scotland's PsycheBiopolis: Tales of Urban BiologyStartling Stories; and Best of British Science Fiction 2022, the latter of which won the BSFA Award for best collection. With Neil Williamson, he co-edited Nova Scotia: New Scottish Speculative Fiction, which was nominated for a World Fantasy Award. Andrew has been put forward twice for the Science Fiction Poetry Association’s Dwarf Stars Award.


Andrew J. Wilson has form for moulding the quotidian dough of reality into inimitable pretzels of deviant logic. Following stories such as "Third-Degree Burns" (Nova Scotia: New Scottish Speculative Fiction), "Under the Bright and Hollow Sky" (Gathering the Bones), "The Last Man in Space" (Fables from the Fountain and Alba ad Astra  Scotland's Forgotten History of Space Exploration) and "The Stilt-Men of the Lunar Swamps" (Shoreline of Infinity: The Chosen from the First Age*), he has returned to the scene of the crime once again. In "The Bruce and the Spider", he turns his cyclopean gaze on a legend that every schoolchild in Scotland knows, but like any pretzel, it's really twisted. A fever dream. an unwarranted insult to a revered national hero, a new dimension in counterfactual history or the dad joke to end them all? You be the judge, jury and executioner.
