Original Text from Shriek: An Afterword:

Even the flies have eyes, Janice. Eyes for them. There is no corner of this city they cannot see in some form. But it's too much information. They cannot review it all at once. I imagine them down there, in the fungal light, reviewing intelligence gathered a decade ago—awash in information, none of it useful to them because it overwhelms them. And yet—why? Why attempt to gather it?
