The Best of Pamela Sargent
Pamela Sargent is one of the authors who I do not remember reading. I have definitely heard of her but somehow missed out on her stories. This looked like a good place to start. And the fact that Michael Bishop did the foreward did not hurt. The stories appeared from 1971 through 1984.
Chrysalis #1 edited by Roy Torgeson
The first volume in one of my favorite anthology series. It includes stories by Harlan Ellison, Theodore Sturgeon, Spider Robinson, Richard A. Lupoff, Elizabeth A. Lynn, Charles L. Grant, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, and Thomas F. Monteleone.
The cover for this collection is by Thomas Barber. The style and design of the ship reminds me of the art of John Schoenherr.
