A nightmare dreamed 1978/9/22 by Chris Wayan
NOTES IN THE MORNING
I really was less upset by the doctor's ventriloquy or treachery or ability to transform into a giant man-eating spider, than by finding out I was one too.
I'm not a spider fan. Or a Spiderman fan. I think this nightmare was provoked instead by Charles Harness's book The Ring of Ritornel, with supplemental giant-spider touches from Fritz Leiber's The Big Time.
The spidery abstract was painted was made without a brush--dripping acrylic paint and then blowing it across an unprimed wood panel to make tangles of spiderlegs. I got quite dizzy making it, from hyperventilation. Or possibly hyperventriloquy.
