I bought this for the story "Sidewise in Time" which is supposedly the first instance of a story of multiple-universe time travel. It was written in 1937. Wonderful stuff. I'm also enjoying other stories in the collection.
Surprisingly good. Really fun short stories about parallel universes.
Seven SF stories, including Delenda est by Anderson. Good stuff.
