Q: Allied with spiders

Vaughn OhlmanI remember a short story... or I remember part of it anyway. The vague plot was that this guy discovered that Earth was part of this big war. Spiders were on one side (the good guys), flies etc were on the other side. I think he discovers this because he can hear them, which causes the bad guys t...

10:57 AM
