Description

Very well written story from a first rate SF writer. Archne the girl of the myth who challenged Athene to a contest and was turned into a spider by the goddess tricks a foolish Modern Young Wife into switching bodies with her for 24 hours. She becomes Lydia and Lydia becomes the spider. Lydia agrees because she can rob her neighbor's jewelry collection of some stones. Archne then has a day as Lydia - including sex with Lydia's husband.

I wont spoil the twist in the end.
