NB:  John Morris points out that the original version of the story published in the Atlantic Monthly is not quite the same as that collected in Nabokov's Dozen, the version which appears in the Stories (pp. 426-33).  He himself mentioned some slight differences in a note: "The Steel-and-Leather Guys" in The Nabokovian 42 (1999): 23-25.
