This is fiction. Any resemblance to actual people or places is purely coincidental.
A hearty thank-you goes to Mulligan for editing this story, eliminating a number of errors and enhancing its readability. Any remaining errors are my own. I also wish to thank members of the Swarm authors list, especially Akarge and Swarmfic, for thoughtful, constructive criticism.
