FAR OUT IN DEEP OFF CENTRE TURNING ON [Gateway omnibus]
(reprint) omnibus: 2014
(Tall) Trade paperback
Omnibus of: FAR OUT (1961) + IN DEEP (1966) + OFF CENTRE (1969) + TURNING ON (1967.) What a colossal bargain! Damon Knight is at his best at shorter lengths; 20 of these stories make up the bulk of The Best of Damon Knight. Very strongly recommended!
Far Out (1961) - the first collection of stories by Damon Knight. 11 out of 13 of these can be found in the 1976 restrospective The Best of Damon Knight - just to give you an idea of the quality of these stories. Knight is a master of the short SF story - don't form your opinion of him based only on his novels. I recommend this (or any other collection of his stories/novelets.)
(Introduction by Anthony Boucher)
Original appearances from 1950 to 1960 - in Galaxy (4), Star SF #4, Venture, Magazine of F&SF (2), Beyond, IF, Amazing, Infinity, Satellite.
In Deep - a collection of stories by Damon Knight. This is the contents of the revised 1964 British edition (and later reprints), which omitted one story ("The Handler") from the 1963 American version. That story was added to the 1967 British edition of Turning On - so that buyers of the British versions wouldn't miss any stories.

Original appearances from 1951 to 1957: (4) in Galaxy, (2) in Magazine of F&SF, plus Imagination.
Off Centre - a collection of stories by Damon Knight. This is the expanded 1969 British version which adds 3 stories to the 1965 American Off Center.
What Rough Beast

Turning On - a collection of stories by Damon Knight. This is the contents of the 1967 British edition, which added one story to the 1966 American version. "The Handler" had been omitted from the British edition of In Deep - so the inclusion here makes sure that buyers of the British versions don't miss any stories.
