The last chapter in the GDQ series (comprised of the Giants, Drow, and Queen subseries) for AD&D.  It was provided its own code to illustrate that it can be easily played by itself.  It is the only module in the GDQ series that does not have a monochrome version.

The entire GDQ series was later combined into supermodule:

GDQ1-7 Queen of the Spiders

Q1 Queen of the Demonweb Pits comes with a double cover (module booklet nested inside two covers of maps).  Thanks to Eric Pass for this info.
