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.
