Knight SF Argosy <— Anthologies & Collections —> Silverberg Mirror of Infinity
Damon Knight, ed.

Simon & Schuster, 1973

This volume, appearing only a couple months after Knight's Science Fiction Argosy, is clearly a fantasy counterpart to that book, though this volume isn't as along, nor does it declare the same ambition. Knight's introduction talks about "realms beyond our knowledge", and says "The stories in this book have been chosen because they gave me delicious glimpses into certain of these realms..."
