¹The stories of Ki-Gor and the Giant Gorilla Men (Fall 1939) and Nirvana of the Seven Voodoos (Spring 1949) are identical in content.

²The title on the cover and spine of the Summer 1948 Jungle Stories reads Zomba Has a Thousand Spears, while the title appearing in the interior of the magazine on the table of contents and opening page of the featured story reads Cromba Has a Thousand Spears. The first Ki-Gor story, Ki-Gor, Lord of the Jungle, was reprinted in this same issue, this time attributed to the house name John Peter Drummond instead of John Murray Reynolds, whose name accompanied the original printing in the Winter 1938-1939 Jungle Stories.

³When The Monsters of Voodoo Isle [2] (Fall 1952) was reprinted in High Adventure #81 (2005), the title was changed to The Monster of Voodoo Isle.
