“The Closest Thing to Animals,” by Sofia Samatar

“The Closest Thing To Animals,” by Sofia Samatar.

I’ve been meaning to read something by Samatar for a while (I enjoyed her “Selkie Stories Are For Losers,” which made the Hugo shortlist), and Fireside Fiction is a magazine I want to read more of. There’s a list of “Favorite African SF&F This Year” that I liked ( https://wtalabi.wordpress.com/2015/11/28/my-favorite-african-science-fiction-and-fantasy-sff-short-fiction-of-2015/ ), and this is one of the stories from that list I nabbed for reading.

Read the story:
