Fun Fact: The main character in the Cold Zero short story is called Anthalia. A quick search on the Internet reveals that Anthalia is “a genus of hybotid dance flies in the family Hybotidae. There are about 15 described species in Anthalia” (Wikipedia). And more from Wikipedia reveals that some of these flies, “such as Tachydromia, are predators that run around on the bark of trees in complex patterns, hence the common name.” Dancing predator flies? Yeah, that totally fits the MC!
