Skelos Founding Patrons, Benefactors, and Supporters

First appearance of  "The Nameless Tribe Drafts"  
Edited by Mark Finn, Chris Gruber, and Jeffrey Shanks
A Signed / Numbered Limited Robert E. Howard Days edition was produced as the first edition.
It was limited to 30 copies and signed by the editors and many of the contributors that were at Robert E. Howard Days 2016.

The Howard Days edition preceded the regular edition.
The regular edition received several more rounds of copy editing, adjustments to images and layout, and the addition of advertisements and the names of Kickstarter Supporters, Benefactors, and Founding Patrons.

The page count difference between the two editions is primarily due to formatting changes.
"A Revelation Dream" by Kenneth Bykerk only appears in the 2016 Howard Days edition.
