      Edited by John L. Apostolou and Martin H. Greenberg Consulting Editors: Grania Davis and Judith Merril
      It seems from Grania Davis' foreword that she and Judith Merril worked with authors and translators in 1979 and 1980 to create a collection of stories. Once completed they could not find a publisher willing to take on the work. In the late 1980s Martin Greenberg and John Apostolou were able to arrange publication. Thus it's a little odd that the formal editor's credits are Apostolou and Greenberg.
