Hmm. I don't remember ever going public with my original sorting for books, but I did have Celtic and Reincarnation as separate volumes at first. When you read Burke's introduction to Swords, you'll see why they got combined.

Regarding "Marcher's of Valhalla," It's not really a question of "version." We have an early draft that's 14 pages. It's clearly a draft, lots of synopsis. Then there's a longer, more detailed draft that's 32 pages. This one has some Hyborian references, two, I think. And these weren't "cut  from the text prepared by Glenn Lord," they were *replaced* by Robert E. Howard. Besides the two drafts here, we also have three pages of a later draft that replace the Hyborian references, and we have five pages that add in most of the James Allison introductory piece.


The volume does not have a notes section, but I did include a note on "Marchers" that quotes the Hyborian items from the earlier draft, as well as a few other things relevant to the story.
