The Town and Salamanca

Allan Seager’s classic short story is up (in two installments) at McSweeney’s.

The story, sez McSweeney’s, first “appeared in the 1935 edition of The Best American Short Stories, edited by E. J. O’Brien. O’Brien was so taken with the story that he dedicated that year’s volume to Seager, and announced in a later interview that the ‘apostolic succession of the American short story’ ran from Sherwood Anderson to Ernest Hemingway to Allan Seager.”
