The Invasive Exotics - (2010) tells the tale of a CEO (Byron E. Slimecold) of an ice cream corporation, the Slimecold Creamery, who attempts to gentrify Brooklyn within a month by introducing a species of invasive exotics ants, or "Siafu" (army ants of Tanzania). He pumps the Siafu full of steroids and alters their DNA, making them obnoxious at least, lethal at worst. As residents flee the pandemic, he plans to buy all the newly abandoned property, allowing there to be a Slimecold Creamery on every street corner. Unfortunately, his unpaid intern becomes disgruntled for financial reasons and gives the ants overdoses of steroids. This causes the ants to grow to monstrous proportions. Jane Easewell, the former head of the Project Siafu, must kill the queen ant in order to save New York City. "INVASIVE EXOTICS is a mash-up of a startling array of genres, including sci-fi, conspiracy fiction, psychedelic social satire, slice-of-life, and crime fiction." Rob Clough, High Low Review
