Published in chronological order, with extensive story and bibliographic notes, this series not only provides access to stories that have been out of print for years, but gives them a historical and social context. Series editors Scott Conners and Ronald S. Hilger excavated the still-existing manuscripts, letters and various published versions of the stories, creating a definitive "preferred text" for Smith's entire body of work. This second volume of the series brings together 20 of his fantasy stories. It includes, in chronological order, all of his stories from "The Door to Saturn" (January 1932) to "The Hunters from Beyond" (October, 1932). This volume also features an introduction by Tim Powers, as well as extensive notes on each story.
