Real-World Chronology of Glorantha Concepts

A couple of years ago Fabian Küchler (chief organizer of the Tentacles conventions and now the Kraken, and editor of many a fund raiser)  came up with what was essentially a Patreon to get Greg Stafford back on his keyboard to write a Gloranthan novel. The result was (at least) the first part of "Ten Women Well Loved", telling the adventures of Harmast Barefoot from his adoption to the Hendriki tribe until his misadventures in Nochet when the Grandmothers recognized his slightly modified Berennethtelli tattoos as Kodigvari. This was significantly after Morden Defends the Camp.

From what I have seen of other such material, these starts are quite frequent in Greg's unpublished opus, and some of these have since been presented as mood pieces, like e.g. "Aftal the Waertagi" in Missing Lands. I would appreciate seeing a collection of these unfinished texts in print.

Speaking for myself, I found that writing a short mood piece in prose often gives me a better idea of a character, group or setting than giving a gazetteer-like sandbox, for less effort. Most we know about Talastar comes from Paulis Longvale's travelogue, and without Biturian Varosh we would know a lot less about Prax and Praxians. 

All of this is new to me. Is there a way to read any of this material? Did Fabian give up on trying to get a full novel out of Greg?

And Jeff Richard has talked about writing his own Harmast novel, too (going by the thread on future products)? I am beginning to find it hard to believe that many of these fiction projects will be completed in the next 5 years, though I’d be thrilled to be proven wrong. I really liked Morden Defends the Camp, which I read for the first time last week on the Glorantha.com site. And it didn’t take me long to read Prince of Sartar to the end of its available chapters.
