I had them at hand (had already listed the contents for another website):

L. Sprague de Camp: "Introduction: Heroic Fantasy" (pp. 7-8)
Poul Anderson: "The Valor of Cappen Varra" (pp. 11-24)
Lord Dunsany: "Distressing Tale of Thangobrind the Jeweller" (pp. 27-30)
Robert E. Howard: "Shadows in the Moonlight" (pp. 33-63)
Henry Kuttner: "The Citadel of Darkness" (pp. 67-93)
Fritz Leiber: "When the Sea King's Away" (pp. 97-119)
H.P. Lovecraft: "The Doom that came to Sarnath" (pp. 123-129)
C.L. Moore: "Hellsgarde" (pp. 133-165)
Clark Ashton Smith: "The Testament of Athammaus" (pp. 169-186)

Each contributing author gets a short introduction (hence the missing pages above).


Edit: added some links to free Guthenberg editions of some of the stories. Some of the others were also available online, but I'm unsure about the copyright status...

And in case you already have de Camp's Swords and Sorcery (Beren seems to have sold his signed copy!), you might also want to get it for pure aesthetic concern - they make a nice pair on the bookshelf, having a similar yellow letters on a black background!

Just wanted to give a heads up on a quite obscure magazine (at least for us non-Americans!): Fantastic: Sword & Sorcery and Fantasy Stories November 1976 (Vol. 25, No. 5). My copy arrived today, and it can be found for what I regard as decent prices at Amazon.com (currently it seems like no copies are listed on eBay):

http://www.amazon.com/Fantastic-Sorce ... TF8&qid=1328011809&sr=8-3

It includes the article "White Wizard in Tweeds" by L. Sprague de Camp, upon which he based the chapter "Merlin in Tweeds: J.R.R. Tolken" included in his Literary Swordsmen and Sorcerers.

As in the book chapter, the article in Fantastic provides a few quotes attributed to Tolkien.

For more information about the relation between Morris and Tolkien, I would recommend you to have a look in The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide - there's an entry in Reader's Guide for William Morris (pp. 598-604).
