  1. I’d guess the best known piece here is “My Name Is Legion”.

    This collection has been available for about a month now, maybe a bit longer. NESFA announced it at the same time at the second volume of The Collected Short Fiction of Poul Anderson. I was behind the curve, so my copies are still On The Way.

    Thanks for the plug.  I’m currently at work on the second volume, currently called <i>Robots and Magic</i> and slated for release at Boskone in February.  It will contain another 34 stories, probably the best known of which is “Helen O’Loy.”  It will also contain a lost story which was only printed once in a fanzine.

     

    Between <i>War and Space</i> and <i>Robots and Magic</i>, these two volumes will be reprinting about two-thirds of the short fiction del Rey published.

  3. now THAT’s good news. I’ve marked my calendar.
