The tape begins with McCaffery announcing the next event. He then introduces Bumpus and says the story to be read has not been published yet. Bumpus reads "The Outdoorsman," a short story published in The Partisan Review, Volume 44, Number 3, in the summer of 1977. The story was later published in an anthology called Heroes and Villains in 1986. The volume is low and the reading hard to hear due to noise from the tape recorder. After the story, there is applause. McCaffery invites questions, and one is about who his influences were. Bumpus answers that none helped with this story. A question about angels elicits an answer from Bumpus in which he talks about reading Jung that influenced another story. He is not sure why the Partisan Review took this story. After more applause, the group breaks up.
