    • Title on the Cover reads "Isaac Asimov Presents The Great SF Stories 3 (1941)". Title on the spine reads, "Asimov The Great SF Stories: 3".
    • Introduction not signed, but according to Isaac Asimov in an essay from Gold stated that all of the Introductions from this series were written by Greenberg.
    • Introduction as by "The Editors" on the TOC.
    • The TOC misspells Fredric Brown's first name as "Frederic". The title page has the right name.
    • Five Robert A. Heinlein stories ("And He Built a Crooked House", "They", "Universe", "Solution Unsatisfactory", and "By His Bootstraps") were meant to be included, but arrangements for their use could not be made. The introductions for them are still in the book. The introduction erroneously states that all five can be found in his Collection "The Past Through Tomorrow" (1967). Volume 4 of the series has an errata note about this.
