Damon Knight, ed.

Delacorte, 1964

Damon Knight's second big anthology supplemented his first, as several later editors were to do, with a volume of longer stories, novellas or short novels. This volume includes three stories -- the first three -- that were originally, or since have been, published as separate books. (Page numbers are taken from the 1965 Dell paperback reprint.)

  1. “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, Robert Louis Stevenson
  2. “The Invisible Man”, H. G. Wells (Pearson's Weekly Jun 12 1897 (+8))
  3. “The Absolute at Large”, Karel Capek
  4. “Gulf”, Robert A. Heinlein (Astounding Nov 1949 (+1))
  5. “E for Effort”, T. L. Sherred (Astounding May 1947)
  6. “Hunter, Come Home”, Richard McKenna (F&SF Mar 1963)
