A Gent from Bear Creek was first published by Herberg Jenkins in England, 1937 after Howards death. This version is published by Donald M. Grant in 1975 and unfortunately introduces a few errors and editorial changes, including removal of all italics.

The title of both an original short story, as well as a novel created by combining several previous short stories with some new material; the previously published short stories were altered a little to create chapters with a continuous story line, and new material was added as additional chapters.
