Galaxies Like Grains of Sand (1960) - a collection of stories, linked by connecting "history" (up to 4 or 5 pages, most are 1 page.) This is a variant of the British collection The Canopy of Time from 1959 - containing 7 out of 11 stories from that volume, and adding 1 story plus much-expanded interludes. This sort of variant collection and borrowing back and forth for American/British editions is typical for several British writers of SF short stories.
...The War Millennia:
The connecting "history" is original to the 1960 Signet paperback; the stories first appeared in Authentic SF. (2), New Worlds (2), Nebula (2), plus 1 each in Infinity and Magazine of F&SF, from 1957 or 1958.
