Re: Essential Anthologies
I have a curious one,a little paperback called A Sense of Wonder.
3 nice early stories in there from Murray Leinster,John Wyndham and Jack Williamson,which I've yet to read.
A nice collection i once had was Off Planet by Simak,which introduced me to this author. Then there's Asimov,the robot books,king being I,Robot.
These are collections of course and I don't have a world class anthology of classic SF as yet,so this thread will prove useful!
