Of if anyone has a complete listing of the stories

Jeanne, I added more details to the topic header/title, so your book might be recognized from that description alone. Many members only read the headers.

Feel free to update it by clicking the small "edit" link after the topic header. This only works on the full Desktop website - not the Mobile website or app. (On the Mobile website, there's a "Desktop version" link at the bottom of the page.)

I believe the anthology is Sunlight & Shadows (not Sunshine) (1974) by James A. MacNeill (Ed.). Short story authors listed on Goodreads:

James A. MacNeill (editor), Glen A. Sorestad (editor), Roald Dahl, Guy de Maupassant, Frank R. Stockton, Graham Greene, E.B. White, Alice Munro, Jacques Ferron, Jean Shepherd, Alden Nowlan, Dorothy M. Johnson, Ambrose Bierce, Ted Wood, W. Somerset Maugham, Frank O'Connor, Gwendolyn MacEwen, William Saroyan, Andreas Schroeder, Eric Frank Russell, Alan Bloch, Terry Carr, W.D. Valgardson

Thank you, Kris for the correction. I found that list of writers but can't find a list of the stories to go with it.

I was going to suggest writing James A. MacNeill since there's a website listed on his Goodreads page. However, it's been discontinued, and googling reveals he died back in 2016.

Your best bet is probably buying a copy or messaging a seller. There are plenty of inexpensive copies available for purchase online.

I'm moving this to "Just to chat" since you already know what book this is.

Jeanne | 13 comments Sorry; I thought it would go here because I don't know the name of any of the stories in the anthology.

I know; I checked World Cat. I haven't found any inexpensive copies of this anywhere, but I will look again.

Of course "inexpensive" is a relative term, but there are plenty of options under $15.

Jeanne | 13 comments I don't consider $15 reasonable to find out the name of a story. That's why I posted on here hoping someone might know.

Rainbowheart | 19559 comments I would try messaging some of the sellers then. One of them should be able to provide you with a list of the stories.
