message 7: by David (new)

David Two separate titles on this list are actually the same book. Science Fiction: Classic Stories From The Golden Age of Science Fiction is a reprint/retitle of The Mammoth Book of Golden Age Science Fiction: Short Novels of the 1940s (aka The Mammoth Book of Golden Age Science Fiction: Ten Classic Stories from the Birth of Modern Science Fiction Writing). A quick Google search revealed that they share the same contents list.


message 6: by Rasheed (new)

Rasheed Thanks. One of them has been removed after combining.


message 5: by Rasheed (new)

Rasheed Removing The Endlands Vol.1 because it is a mixed genre book containing horror, fantasy and science fiction stories.


message 4: by Scott (new)

Scott Removed a bunch of single-author collections.


message 3: by Rasheed (new)

Rasheed Thanks.


message 2: by Kevin (new)

Kevin Minh-sang Everyone, there is a collection that has a certain story and I can't find it. There's a failing artist who creates art from a scan of a woman's dream and she later on robs him.


message 1: by Monty (new)

Monty Circus Burning Chrome is not an anthology.
