 reference copy provided courtesy of tony at the old pier bookshop, morecambe seafront.

in notes, for "geoff" read "groff" - tablettything's automiscorrectafterleavingtheword bu^W feature!

 each story has a brief, sf magazine-style editor's introduction on its first page; i've no idea why grosset & dunlap dropped geoff conklin's introduction to the anthology as a whole, save perhaps to reduce their production costs of this edition by the price of some paper & ink...

"microcosmic god" theodore sturgeon's powerful novelette, was in asf 4/1941, which information yr hmbl srppnt.'d forgotten wasn't in the first acknowledgements.

year estimated by interpolation of tempo books' cat# isbns and comparison of cover prices.
