But Don, Chalker does state in his introduction that he considers (for
whatever reason) only the stories appearing in Uncle $crooge to be
canonical. That's why he ignores the others.

The book's bibliography by Kim Weston explains why some of the non-Barks
stories were included. (Only two were mentioned as being used--"Invisible
Intruder" and "Travel Tightwad.")

Wow! You burrowed all the way to Minnesota and didn't even say "hello?" :)
BTW, that's sounds like a neat trick using Gopher to mail a file back to
yourself. I want to try it some day.
