An excellent collection of short stories by C. M. Kornbluth: A Mile Beyond the Moon. This is the second of 3 primary surveys of his work that collect without overlap the bulk of his output (the others were The Explorers and The Marching Morons.) This has his most famous story ("The Little Black Bag") - but I'd also strongly recommend "Make Mine Mars", "The Slave", "Shark Ship," and "Two Dooms." For all but "The Little Black Bag" - this is their first appearance in a Kornbluth collection. Kornbluth was a master short story writer whose stories are still readable. SF suffered a major loss when he died in 1958. I don't know if there is any complete paperback edition of this book: 2 from the Sixties and a 1976 edition contained only 11/15 stories.
