The “Pigeons from Hell” draft is a facsimile of the Howard typescript. It is significantly shorter than the final story and does not have the element of revenge that is in the final version.
The list of ruler’s titles covers countries in the Near and Middle East.

“Pigeons from Hell,” “The Guardian of the Idol,” and the List of Middle and Near Eastern Titles are all facsimile reproductions of original typescripts.

The synopsis on the back cover is a color facsimile of the Howard typescript.
