THE MASQUE OF MAŅANA
(Introduction by David G. Hartwell)
A major retrospective of Sheckley's short fiction, with 41 stories from 1952 to 1992. Stories appear in order of publication. All but one have appeared in previous Sheckley collections. There is significant overlap (contains more than half) with Citizen in Space (1955), Store of Infinity (1960), and The Robert Sheckley Omnibus (1973-UK.) This contains 10/12 of The Wonderful World of Robert Sheckley. Unless you plan to collect all of his collections, this would be a good single-volume survey of Sheckley's stories.
Original appearances: (26) from Galaxy, (4) from Magazine of F&SF, (5) from Playboy, and one each from Fantasy Magazine, Astounding, IF, Fantastic Universe, Stardate, and Alternate Presidents.
