The story was announced in the final January 1934 edition of The Magic Carpet Magazine.
From the letters:
In a letter (#333) to Otis Adelbert Kline, January 8 Howard mentions the story:
So I’m re-writing “Sailor Dorgan and the Jade Monkey” in the third person for him to try. This one, you know, you placed with Wright for the Magic Carpet, and recently returned to me to be re-written when Magic Carpet was abandoned as a publishing project. If Kofoed sells this, you’ll receive your commission just as if you had sold it, for you’ve handled the yarn and are entitled to it.
