The Arbor House Treasury Of Great Science Fiction Short Novels - Martin H. Greenberg and Robert Silverberg

A companion volume to The Arbor House Treasury of Modern Science Fiction, here collecting novella length work, noting that SF is one of the places that still produced a reasonable number of these too short to be standalone and too long for your garden variety anthology works.

Fine stuff, too, at 3.70.

Like the companion book, a 4.25ish round up to 4.5 anthology.
