The book's author is "A Forgotten Explorer".

The mosquitoes in this swamp are vexing, but strange. The vast majority of them seem to have no natural source, nor do they seem to have a role in the local ecology. I have begun to suspect that they are some kind of magical curse.
Now that I have encountered a protection spell on the ruined labyrinth here, I consider my suspicions confirmed. Both the protection spell and the mosquitoes are a curse. This curse seems to have a different source from the others I have encountered. I will have to research further...
The curse seems to be of a type too powerful for one being alone to produce. Several wizards working in combination would be necessary.
If one of the wizards stopped contributing, the whole of the curse over the entire swamp would fall. Strangely, my divinations do not show signs of any nearby living wizards. I did see something interesting in one of the nearby pointy-roofed towers though...
