THE BEST OF KIM STANLEY ROBINSON
Night Shade Books
(Tall) Trade paperback
The Best of Kim Stanley Robinson (2010) - a retrospective. Most of these can be found in earlier collections (2 stories not in other collections / one original) - but if you want a single-volume survey, this would probably do fine. This set of 22 stories includes 4/8 of The Planet on the Table (1986) and 11/15 of Remaking History (1991.) Overlap with the British set of collections is 6/11 of Down and Out in the Year 2000 (1992) and 9/14 of Vinland the Dream (2002.)
"The Timpanist of the Berlin Philharmonic, 1942" is original to the 2010 hardcover edition. The rest originally appeared from 1980 to 2005 - in Universe 11, Magazine of F&SF (3), Interzone, Universe 14, A Sensitive Dependence on Initial Conditions (2), Asimov's (2), Isaac Asimov's (4), Omni, What Might Have Been, Universe 1 (1990), Terry's Universe, Remaking History, Voyager 5: Collector's Edition, Nature.
