After a five year hiatus I have gathered some new stories (new to me!) from some of my favourite authors.

I was able to find some real gems among the authors still writing Spander with some help from sparrow2000 who sent me a marvelous list of recs to get me started.

A drabble has been added to her Perceptions!verse and a whole book (Nightjay)to her epic series Magpie. I have also added book 3 of The Resolute Urgency Of Now by Emelye, Life Could Ever Grant Me is finished and now completes that wonderful series and I have also caught up with Truth Denied by Perverted Pages which is now archived complete here, as is Stillrose's wonderfull and fully complete Always a Sneer in Vegas

We also have a new category: FutureFic for stories with a sci-fi bent. I am sure I have overlooked a few that should be in that category, if anybody knows, Contact me

I know I have left out more authors than I can count, I had to stop somewhere and post this update or it would have been another year waiting on it. This won't be the last update, I will continue collecting stories for what I hope will be twice yearly updates at this stage. If RL continues to kick that might drop to annual but I will be seriously trying. I am happy to take suggestions for the next update, it's very time saving for me if I am sent links to stories so don't hold back if you know of a terrific story that's missing at Spanderfiles. Contact me
