Terry Carr : Anthologies

Knight: Orbit <— Anthologies —> Asimov: Anthologies

Aside from the his best-of-year annuals, Terry Carr's anthologies included a cheekily titled Science Fiction for People Who Hate Science Fiction in 1966; three volumes of New Worlds of Fantasy, containing stories of 'contemporary' fantasy in contrast to the heroic fantasy genre forming in the 1960s in wake of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings; several volumes of thematic anthologes for the library market (those published by Thomas Nelson), an ambitious Classic Science Fiction volume covering the the first three years of the 1940s, with long introductions and lists of references, presumably first of a series that was never followed up due to Carr's death; and a substantial theme anthology, Dreams's Edge, published by the Sierra Club (compiled on "Ends of the World" page).

Carr's last singleton, A Treasury of Modern Fantasy presents 33 stories in chronological order, all first published in fantasy magazines, from Weird Tales to The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. The introduction presents the book as filling a gap in fantasy book publishing up to that time, describes how modern fantasy differs from traditional 19th century forms, and reviews the history of 20th century fantasy magazines.

Most-reprinted authors: R.A. Lafferty (9), Terry Carr and Robert Silverberg (7), then Brian W. Aldiss and Roger Zelazny (6 each).
