There is another Swedish Barks index, primarily sorted on Swedish
publication, printed by NAFS(k) as NAFS(k)uriren #5. The reason I
missed the 1987 reprint of WDC 174 was because I used an *old*
machine-readable version of that index. I've put that index on
ftp.lysator.liu.se (in pub/comics/disney/swedish/) now, but I would
really like an updated version of it instead. Greger? Johan? Could
you please supply me with one?
