Edward Levy (born in Brooklyn, New York) is an American horror novelist with three books published. Came a Spider was written in 1978, and The Beast Within followed in 1981. He wrote The People Next Door in 1983, but copies are very scarce. Levy is currently revising The People Next Door and is also in the process of writing a new novel entitled Something Most Evil.

Millions of us. Billions of them. Nature didn't create them-man di. .Edward Levy was actually a seventies horror author rather than an eighties horror author, but Came a Spider was one of the first books to chart the course that more recent horror novels would take, scaling down the supermonsters of fifties and sixties "atomic cinema" and switching the focus from Robert Oppenheimer to Rachel Carson.

  • This is one of Levy's two books and it was just a great as the other one. The title obviously gives the premise away but it is a very intersting take on experiments awry. And with spiders...wow...I read once that if spiders were the size of dogs, the human race would be extinct as would most other species. While the spiders are not the size of dogs( sorry readers, this is not a spoiler alert) the idea of a spider invasion is just as horrifying. It is an easy read and will make you want to kill every spider you see. Edward Levy took an old idea and gave it a new spin for it's time as the book is about 30 years old but it is still a great story and would make a great movie if it had the right director and writer that would leave the heart of it alone. Too bad he didn't continue to write. I would liked to have seen what other stories his brilliant mind could have conjured. And by the way, if you liked this book see if you can find INSECT WARRIORS. It is no longer in print but I found it on the Amazon website and bought it immediately. It was also a great book for it's time, once again, both books are over 30 years old but well worth finding, reading and keeping for the pure pleasure of occasionally going back to reread.

  • I'm very glad this book has made it to the digital format. My paperback is in very poor shape, so it's nice to have this incarnation. Bluntly, this is the best killer spider book I have read. I'm a huge fan of nature-gone-amok stuff, so am no stranger to this kind of pulp horror fiction. I read the book within a day because I just couldn't put it down. I won't delve into characters or plot. Usually, there's only a couple things fans of B-horror books want to know. Is the book written well enough? And is there much spider mayhem? I can assure all that the book was well-written and is packed with tons of action, making the entertainment consistent throughout. Some attacks are pretty large-scale too. Any fan of these types of books should have this in his/her collection. It's a great companion piece to Spiders.

  • "Came a Spider" is one of the best stories I've read in a long time, and I usually read 3-4 books a week. It truly is one you can't put down. It is filled with good character development, a great plot, and believable (if not completely accurate) science. The suspense starts at the beginning and never stops building. There are some typographic but they are easy to bypass.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone!

  • I'd been wanting to read this since I was a kid and saw my big brother reading it. I never got the change until a friend recently gave it to me as a gift. It was all I'd hoped for.

    I wish Edward Levy had written more books. I'm gearing up to read The Beast Within, and if it's half as great I'll be very, very pleased.

    If you want creepy, check this one out.

  • I read this book 30+ years ago and it was just as good this time as when I read it the first time. Classic!

  • A great creepy read meant to be read over and over again...

  • ...P>Edward Levy was actually a seventies horror author rather than an eighties horror author, but Came a Spider was one of the first books to chart the course that more recent horror novels would take, scaling down the supermonsters of fifties and sixties "atomic cinema" and switching the focus from Robert Oppenheimer to Rachel Carson. (That Rachel Carson doctored her data does not in any way invalidate the sheer creepiness of a good deal of ecohorror.) Came a Spider was his first novel, of only two I could ever find that he wrote, and while it's the lesser of the two, it's still a barnburner of a read. Levy hits you early on; in the opening scene, a large, nasty-looking spider bites a teenager, who gets progressively sicker over the next week, then dies, his purpose fulfilled-a cocoon for the spiders' eggs. From there, the babies of this mutant beast do what comes naturally to mutant monsters in horror novels. They launch a campaign to take over Los Angeles.
    Came a Spider, for all the genre-writing silliness, was an insanely influential novel. Very little of what has come since has remained uninfluenced by it (the climactic hunt for the spiders' nest in the sewers of Los Angeles, especially, should be very familiar to fans of eighties mutant monster movies, starting with 1980's Alligator). It helps that Levy has a wonderfully readable style, causing the reader to want to forgive some of the deadwood in the dialogue (e.g., one of the scientists on the team trying to kill the spiders off has a tendency to use the term "personally," as in "I personally know..." and the like, way, way too much). The pages certainly keep turning quickly enough, so that if you've got an afternoon free you can probably plow through the whole book.
    Levy's work has been re-released, and can now be discovered by a new generation of fans. Allilujah. ****

  • This is the first book I've read by author Edward Levy, but it certainly won't be my last! (I'm already looking for copies of "The Beast Within" and "The People Next Door".) "Came a Spider" is an extremely readable book that flies along at a brisk pace. The action starts practically from page one and doesn't bog down at any point in the book.
    The story revolves around an innocent encounter between a young boy and a scientifically-mutated spider. When the boy is violently attacked by the spider and infused with hundreds of spider eggs, he becomes a human incubator for the millions of arachnids that follow. Soon the city of Los Angeles and possibly the entire West Coast is threatened to be overrun by these mutant tarantulas. Levy really pours on the suspense and does a very good job describing the grisly spider attacks on the Californa populace. Government officials are soon faced with the fact that if they don't take drastic action soon, they may lose the battles with the arachnids. Does science or the military come to the rescue? You'll have to read the book to find out.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for those who like a good "nature-goes-awry" yarn!
