Design: Lawrence Ratzkin
Dustjacket= VG+ to near-Fine
The Best Science Fiction Stories of Clifford D. Simak - a collection of 7 stories or novelets. If you are already a fan of Simak, there is nothing much here that you won't already have. But for an introduction to his work - this would be an excellent sample to find out why you should read Simak. Simak at his prime has a somewhat pastoral voice and values, leavened with a quirky sense of humor and a taste for the weird or alien.
(Some story summaries):
3 are from Galaxy, 2 from Astounding, one from Magazine of F&SF (from 1954 to 1960), and were previously collected in Simak's major collections. "New Folk's Home" from Analog (1963) was first collected here.
This collection first appeared in Britian as a hardcover from Faber & Faber (1967.) American editions started with a Doubleday hardcover in 1970, a SFBC reprint in 1971, and Paperback Library did the first paperback in 1972.
