Anthologies

Introduction

GNS has been anthologised in book form surprisingly rarely given how many short stories he's written, just eighteen stories over almost forty years and a few of them were reprints from other publications.

This page lists all of his short stories that have been published in anthologies, initially in a basic table and then with covers and further details below.

For other work, return to Short Stories or Broken Backlist.
