The protagonist's name is the same in all the various versions I've seen, Hialmar, but in the previously published versions, Asgrimm is actually Bragi on the typescript, and Kelka is really Gorm. We've restored these back to the original.
Frank's book is not the one Hyborian Frog is asking about. That book has not happened, and Paul Herman was handling the details, so I don't know what's going on there. I assume that it died, but maybe it's just bogged down.
