My Charlotte: Patty’s Story is a short, sweet memoir about a life in a garden and one writer’s first inspiration. Includes Lisa Mason’s first story, “Arachne,” published by Omni Magazine worldwide, by Hayakawa in Japan, and by Replik in Sweden
Reading Charlotte’s Web inspired Mason to write her own novels at age eight. Her quest to discover the meaning of the spider led her to Jungian psychology, myths, and symbols. The classic myth of Arachne became the subtext of her first story, “Arachne,” published in Omni Magazine. Her first two early cyberpunk novels followed, Arachne and Cyberweb, published by William Morrow and Avon Books. She is presently working on an adaptation of those books as The Quester Trilogy.
