First in the otherness series from Kuttner-Moore: all stories are avaialble in the Del Rey/Ballantine Best of Kuttner collection aside from one and all are exceptional. A must for anyone interested in the authors as well as choice Sc-Fi from the Golden Era.

i would like to read this book someday. i think that this will require finding it in some used book store somewhere. if you're a used book store frequenter and you could keep your eyes peeled for me, i'd be grateful.

Quite a good collection of old short stories. Best and most memorable for me were "Cold War", "Nothing but Gingerbread Left", and "Housing Problem". Keep an eye out for this book.
This is my other absolute favorite Sci-Fi short story collection. And Housing Problem might be one of my favorite short stories ever.

Henry Kuttner was, alone and in collaboration with his wife, the great science fiction and fantasy writer C. L. Moore, one of the four or five most important writers of the 1940s, the writer whose work went furthest in its sociological and psychological insight to making science fiction a human as well as technological literature.
