Edit January 7, 2019: This was a good collection of classics from the latter Golden Age of short stories, before the post-War decline of magazine fiction in the modern technological era. Some of these authors are a bit obscure by now. But others went on to great acclaim and continued popular publication. My nitpick is that the stories are sorted alphabetically by author's name, which makes little sense over the half century covered.
