Short Story

Bates acknowledges his literary influences before putting his attention on four women writers who "have played an astonishingly large part in the growth of the modern short story": Dorothy Edwards, Pauline Smith, Malachi Whitaker, and Katherine Ann Porter. "These...are the writers with whom, sometimes, I feel I should like to change places." In John O'London's Weekly (January 31, 1941, p. 449-450).
