Western stories by science fiction authors

Many moons ago I compiled this list with the late Kent Johnson: it was a proposition for an anthology with Western stories by authors known mainly for their science fiction / fantasy / horror. We never read any of the stories (unless Kent did), so we didn't take this very seriously, but we called the list The Mammoth Book of Western Stories by Science Fiction Authors. Almost all the stories are from pulp magazines, with the possible exception of Moorcock's story, which is almost surely juvenile. I think this still sounds fascinating. EDIT: I found the date for Moorcock!
