Prepared and presented by David Genzel from the first draft. Contains ‘Ring-Tailed Tornado’ which is presented here in its original form for the first time. Every other appearance before this has been of a version rewritten by someone at the Kline agency, rewritten into a Breckinridge Elkins story. 

According to Patrice Louinet, three drafts of this story were prepared. No typescript of the second draft seems to have survived. The third draft i almost certainly the source for the rewritten Breckinridge version.
