I had thought that some of the second chapter (but definitely not the first) was Willeford--it contains some of the stuff picked up in Sideswipe. There's a later chapter that is also not authored by Willeford, if I recall correctly. Like the first chapter, it is another dream sequence. The transitions in the post-dream chapters must also be inserts.
