    One thought on “Before the Swarm”

    1. This was not a normal topic for me, but the Atavist has produced some interesting work, and I am busy exploring Kindle singles as a form of media consumption in an effort to explore more ideas in long form narrative in less time than only reading novels.I had hoped for more discourse on the nature of ants and ant colonies than a character study in this piece, but the ultimate result was still fulfilling.

    2. A short bio and the theories of naturalist,Mark Moffett.Moffett is a pretty fascinating guy,who's passion for the inner workings of ant society,just oozes from his whole being.He's sparked my curiousity.
