    • There is also a contents listing on the back of the dustjacket which also divides the stories into the same parts, but Part One are the "Far From Home" stories and Part Two are the "Close to Home" stories. The order of the stories is different than actually printed in the book, and there is a story in the "Far From Home" part which is not in the book at all. It lists the title "The Machine That Hustled Pool"; this uncollected story was published in Nugget, February 1961, retitled "The Pool Hustlers" because Tevis had recently published his novel The Hustler.
