The Great SF Stories 03 - Martin H. Greenberg and Isaac Asimov

There are of course some fantasy stories here, too, The Words Of Guru, A Gnome There Was, Snulbug, etc.

Asimov has a few funny descriptions of his relationships with some of the writers, throughout, and notes they couldn't get permission for any of that Heinlein stuff.
