No credit or visible signature for dust jacket art. - The editors' introduction includes the following note: One of the incidental virtues of anthologies -- from the author's point of view, to say nothing of the editor's -- is that re-publication gives an author an opportunity to make minor or even major revisions in his original story text. Most of the pieces in this collection have undergone slight "perfections" at the voluntary hands of their creators, and one has been made even more effective by the addition of a substantial new episode. We take the view that these improved versions are a kind of bonus to the reader.
