"The Fire of Asshurbanipal" was originally written early in the 1930's as a straight adventure story.  There is no record of where this version of the story was submitted.  
REH later revised the story to have a supernatural ending. This version was submitted to WEIRD TALES after Howard's death by his father.
Glenn Lord discovered the original version of the story in a trunk and it was first published in THE HOWARD COLLECTOR Spring 1972.
