THE INFINITE MOMENT
The Infinite Moment (1961) - a collection of stories by John Wyndham. This collection has a British variant which also came out in 1961: Consider Her Ways. (I don't know which came first, or if they were simultaneous.) Each contains 6 stories - but only 4 are common to both volumes. "How Do I Do?" and "Time Out" can only be found in this collection - substituted for the 3rd and 6th stories of the British variant. The rest are in the same sequence.
Consider Her Ways
"Consider Her Ways" (a novella) - first appeared in Sometime, Never in 1956; "Stitch in Time" came from Magazine of F&SF in 1961; "Time Out" is a title-change for "Time Stops Today" from Future January 1953 - the rest may be original.
His full name was John Wyndham Parkes Lucas Beynon Harris. Before WWII, he wrote as "John Beynon" or "John Beynon Harris" and was considered an able peer of Edmond Hamilton, Jack Williamson, and other writers of space operas. After WWII, he started writing different sorts of tales and thoughtful disaster novels like The Day of the Triffids - published as "John Wyndham."
