In the correction I have suggested, it is Ascalante speaking, not the Stygian. I have no texts at hand to help determine what Howard's original wording may have been, or when this error crept in. unsigned comment by (talk) 03:58, 12 January 2008.

I have restored the prior version, as "Stygian" is what appears in the proofread edition provided by Project Gutenberg.[1] We will gladly accept corrections if a scan of the printed text is provided, ideally with edition details (publisher, year, etc). Scans can be Special:Uploaded onto our website for verification. Cheers, John Vandenberg 04:46, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

The error seems to be a missing carriage return just before "They rode to the frontier ..." These words are spoken by Ascalante. My source is Skull-face and Others, Neville Spearman reprint, page 361. (Your version still has fewer typos than that one.)

I've made the change you recommend. John Vandenberg 07:03, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
