Intelligent ants with their own civilizations, killer moths, apocalyptic bees, mind-bending butterflies, supernatural spiders, giant arachnids, and many more... Several of the tales are of interest to connoiseurs of cryptofiction. One example, The Gold-Seekers, is a take on Herodotus' story of the gold-digging ants. Another, The Captivity of the Professor, includes more fantastic elements (sophisticated ants), but can readily be noted as a direct influence on H. G. Wells' classic, The Empire of the Ants.
