  • Notes:
    • Stated "DAW Book Collectors No. 1496"
    • While the editors are listed as "Jean Rabe & Martin H. Greenberg" on the front cover and spine the title page flips the order and states "Martin H. Greenberg and Jean Rabe".
    • First printing that states "First Printing, December 2009 / 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9".
    • The publisher name is stated as "DAW Books, Inc. on the title page.
    • Priced "$7.99 U.S. / $9.00 CAN"
    • The cover appears to be a photoshopped image. The photographer nor graphic artist are not credited.
    • Each story is preceded by a short author bio/statement.
    • The story We Burgled It, Sure We Did by Mickey Zucker Reichert on page 113 is listed on the copyright/acknowledgments page as 2009 by Miriam S. Zucker.
    • The story Stannis by Anton Strout on page 179 is listed in the table of contents as being on page 180. I chose to enter this as "179" as the story title is on page 179. The author's bio is just over one page in length meaning the story itself starts on page 180.
    • The story 'Twas the Happy Hour After Christmas... by Robert Wenzlaff on page 247 is listed in the table of contents and copyright/acknowledgments page without the trailing ellipsis ("..."). The page headers for this story use 'Twas the Happy Hour...
    • The story Second Choices by Brian M. Thomsen on page 285 is listed on the copyright/acknowledgments page as 2009 by The Estate of Brian M. Thomsen.
    • Transient verification is against a public library copy. I should be able to easily retrieve this publication if needed for a verification question. ~Marc Kupper.
