She used to spend her summers on the paleontological and archaeological digs. Author Kiernan went on to graduate from the Alabama University in Birmingham, and then from the Colorado University in Boulder. Her subjects on interest were vertebrate paleontology and geology, and prior to the start of her career in fiction writing, Kiernan worked for some time as a teacher and in a museum. In 1988, author Kiernan penned a paper that described the species and genus of mosasaur, Selmasaurus.

They try to get their hands on anything cheap that is enough to for a single night. The alternative means used by the misfits for their drug consumptions include nicotine, caffeine. Sometimes they also sleepwalk on real drugs. And under the influence of those drugs, the addicts spend their nights up to the dawn in the shadowy back alleys and death rock clubs. Later, an entity named Spyder comes in the midst of the addicts. She serves as a patron saint for the lost and alienated individuals. This enigmatic Spyder invites all the young misfits into the mesmerizing world of her own. But, people begin to wonder whether the Spyder has been sent to save them or destroy them because of her suspicious activities.

After some time, Niki’s expired lover named Spyder Baxter calls her into an alien world, where Niki is called by the Hierophant.
