“Ogres of East Africa” by Sofia Samatar

Sofia Samatar wrote about the repulsive book A Picnic Party in Wildest Africa, by C.W.L. Bulpett, which was the origin for her Long Hidden story:

A picnic in wildest africa
“I really loved writing this story. It was like a cure for the toxic experience of reading Bulpett, an experience which was also weirdly mesmerizing, I mean nobody made me read Bulpett, I went to the library and found him and finished his whole book in a state of fascinated revulsion.”
