Edited by Rob Roehm
After the first printing was received, Patrice Louinet identified one of the many stray pages in the Glenn Lord Collection as being part of the unfinished "Six-Gun Interview." The page was reproduced and inserted into first printing copies of WESTERN TALES. The additional text will be included in future printings.
All of the items in WESTERN TALES come from Howard's original manuscripts, typescripts, and carbons with the following exceptions:
"Drums of the Sunset" - CROSS PLAINS REVIEW, November 6, 1928
  Chapter 1 and the first five paragraphs of Chapter 2

"The Man on the Ground" - WEIRD TALES, July 1933
