Featuring EL BORAK

There is both a long (42,000 words) and a short (24,000 words) version of this story. 
Records from the Kline Agency also say there is a 12 page version of this story, much shorter than the known two versions.
The first printing of the short version was heavily edited by the editor (Byron Roark) and those changes were copied by THE NEW
HOWARD READER #7 when it reprinted the story in Spring 2000.
The first clean version of the story was in EL BORAK AND OTHER DESERT ADVENTURES.
The short version was offered by Otis Adelbert Kline to TOP-NOTCH, ADVENTURE, COMPLETE STORIES, DIME ADVENTURE, THRILLING ADVENTURE, and NEW MYSTERY ADVENTURES. There were no takers.
The long version was offered to ARGOSY, BLUE BOOK, SHORT STORIES, SUN and ADVENTURE NOVELS.
Again, there were no takers. 
Kline and later agents retained both of the original typescripts and they were eventually donated to Cross Plains Library
.

L. Sprague de Camp created a derivative Conan work based on the long version "The Flame Knife."
It appears in the following places:

THE TWILIGHT OF THE GREY GODS

Alternate Title: THE GREY GOD PASSES
Alternate Title: THE SPEARS OF CLONTARF (a non-fantastic version)

"Spears of Clontarf" was rejected by SOLDIERS OF FORTUNE and Howard rewrote the story, adding more of a weird atmosphere.  It was more than just changing a name here and there, he actually rewrote the story, giving
it a new title, "The Grey God Passes."  Under this title it was rejected by WEIRD TALES.  In hopes of salvaging *something* from the whole affair, REH wrote an entirely new, contemporary horror tale titled "The Cairn on the Headland" which was based on some of the same elements.
Baen published "The Grey God Passes" under its working title, "The Twilight of the Grey Gods"
