|REH sent Otis Adelbert Kline a finished
typescript entitled "Sailor Costigan and the Yellow Cobra." This
typescript was first corrected, and then later changed into the Dennis
Dorgan story "Sailor Dorgan and the Yellow Cobra" by Patrick
Ervin. It was sold to MAGIC CARPET MAGAZINE, but never published
by them. The typescript at the Cross Plains Library is Howard's,
but correction tape has been used to change Howard to Ervin, Costigan to
Dorgan, Mike to Spike, The Sea Girl to The Python,
etc.) Still later, a "clean copy" was produced that incorporated
all the changes and corrections.
There is also an original Costigan typescript, titled "The Fangs of the Yellow Cobra."
"A Korean Night" is a slightly different, earlier original draft of the Costigan version.
Cross Plains Library has an original draft of this story.
