Galaxy of Fear: The Brain Spiders is the seventh book in the young-readers Galaxy of Fear series.

Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

Uncle Hoole's idea of a vacation is visiting the palace of Jabba the Hutt. Of course, it's a working vacation. Hoole wants to study the B'omarr monks who live in tunnels beneath the palace. If Jabba isn't enough to give Zak and Tash nightmares, the monks should do it. The most enlightened monks don't have bodies. They're just brains in jars. Brains in jars that walk around on robotic legs. Worst of all, one of the monks is mad—not just angry-mad, but out-of-his-mind mad. And if Tash isn't careful, she might lose her head.

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

When the story begins, a murderer who carves a K into his victims is imprisoned in Jabba's palace. A prisoner tricks Zak into believing that he is innocent, and Zak lets him escape. This is presumed to be the same murderer. Later, Zak thinks he sees Tash kill someone and carve the same K. This is explained when a brain spider spells out "IM TASH" in sand, suggesting that the murderer's brain was placed in Tash's body and that Tash's brain was placed in a spider.
