    • ISBN-13 (only) on the back of the dust jacket. Interestingly, an ISBN isn't stated on the copyright page.
    • Each story is followed by about half a page of information about the author, plus a half to one and a half page "Author's Note" with background on the story.
    • One of the stories ("The Ghosts of Strangers") has a title page followed by a full page illustration. The others don't have title pages and have a small illustration at the head.
    • The text is well-spaced. This and the above 2 points were taken into account when estimating story "length".
    • OCLC 221152166
    • Note: In my opinion, a couple of the stories (the Emshwiller and the Wein) are not "speculative fiction" in the ISFDB sense. ...clarkmci
