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.
