Author: Carl Stephenson

Variant Title of: Leiningens Kampf mit den Ameisen (by Carl Stephenson ) [may list more publications, awards, reviews, votes and covers]
Type: SHORTFICTION
Length: novelette
Webpages: Wikipedia-EN
Language: English
Note: Borderline speculative: The ant invasion is very much larger than life, and even though the story is written as if it is an account of ordinary life in Brazil, it is the prototype of many more obviously speculative man-versus-nature stories. First published in Esquire, December 1938.
Synopsis: A plantation owner in Brazil receives news that an army of ants is marching toward his plantation, eating every living thing in their path. He refuses to flee and fights a hard battle to stop them.
