Frontier Worlds - Paul Collins

An average original anthology at 3.25. A. Bertram Chandler provides the info, thanking Paul Collins for his work with local SF, which is part of the reason Chandler says he wrote for his mags, and this book continuation, too.

ABC has this amusing tidbit to impart:
"..and Insofar as Books and magazne fiction are concerned, editors in the USA and England now take Australianisms in their strike and no longer make clumsy attempts--and, by all the Odd Gods Of The Galaxy, some of them were incredibly clumsy!--To convert dinkum strine into English."

An actress is rather disloyal to one of her colleagues. Not the brightest move when she ends up in an isolated real life chase scene.
