*The Dragon Hoard* was published in 1968.
*Eva Fairdeath* was published in 1994.

I find it hard to credit that she didn't do any re-writing of the latter
book before she let the publishers have it, if she had it sitting in the
bottom drawer of her desk all that time.

The first volume was published in 1976 in the US as *Don't Bite the Sun*,
the second in 1977 in the US as *Drinking Sapphire Wine*.  They were put
together as *Drinking Sapphire Wine* in 1979 and published together under
that title in the UK; what the two-book volume is called in the US I
wouldn't know but I expect someone there could tell us.
