Who Wrote Si Klegg?
OK - who was the author of "Si Klegg and His Pard Shorty?" Project Gutenburg attributes the 6-book novel to John McElroy, newspaperman better known for his memoir "Andersonville." A reprint edition on Amazon, and the googlebooks online edition attribute the book to Wilbur Hinman. Both editions seem to contain the same material, although the chapters are not in the same order. Is there some skullduggery surrounding the publishing history of this fine little novel?
