“Leiningen Versus the Ants” by Carl Stephenson


Story 292/366

This is Stephenson’s most famous story, originally published in 1938 and anthologized in many places after that. It’s not short, clocking in with a word count of nearly 9K but the style is smooth and it’s a fast read. Favorite line, “And don’t think I’m the kind of fathead who tries to fend off lightning with my fists…” You can find the story all over the web. I found it here.

See you tomorrow!
