Summary :

This 693-page compendium from Nesfa Press seems pricey at $29.95, but considering its contents, it's a great buy. Brown was a legendary master of the short story, and (except for two stories that were rewritten to be parts of Rogue in Space) this volume collects all his known short stories (at least one from EQ's Mystery Magazine) that are even vaguely SF; the whole contents of Space on My Hands (1951), Angels and Spaceships (1954), Honeymoon in Hell (1958), Nightmares and Geezenstacks (1961), Daymares (1968) and Paradox Lost (1973), and a few previously uncollected: more than a hundred stories in all. (Neither this or its companion volume includes the unfinished work "Sex Life on the Planet Mars", which may not, after all, be SF.) The book was edited by Ben Yalow, with cover art by Bob Eggleton, and an Introduction by Barry N. Malzberg.
