The content includes non-Howard material in Swedish, except for Patrice Louinet’s introduction and the “Notes” section, which offers insights into the stories.

This massive volume, well over 650 pages and over 180,000 words, is printed in hardback with dust jacket, in a limited quantity of 300 copies, each individually numbered. Cover artwork is by Tom Foster, cover design by Dennis McHaney.
