Title: The Man Who Liked Dickens Title Record # 76034
Author: Evelyn Waugh
Date: 1933-09-00
Type: SHORTFICTION [non-genre]
Length: short story
Webpages: Wikipedia-EN
Language: English
Note: First published in September of 1933, this is a somewhat macabre short story by the noted British satirist that was later incorporated with minor changes into his novel "A Handful of Dust" (published in 1934). This is not a work of speculative fiction. It is included in the ISFDB only because it was once reprinted in an issue of Fantastic magazine and in diverse genre anthologies.
Synopsis: An upper-class British artist becomes lost in a South American jungle.
