Anthologies seldom make history, but Dangerous Visions is a grand exception. Harlan Ellison's 1967 collection of science fiction stories set an almost impossibly high standard, as more than a half dozen of its stories won major awards - not surprising with a contributors list that reads like a who's who of 20th-century SF:

Evensong by Lester del Rey ~ Flies by Robert Silverberg ~ The Day After the Day the Martians Came by Frederik Pohl ~ Riders of the Purple Wage by Philip José Farmer ~ The Malley System by Miriam Allen deFord ~ A Toy for Juliette by Robert Bloch ~ The Prowler in the City at the Edge of the World by Harlan Ellison ~ The Night That All Time Broke Out by Brian W. Aldiss ~ The Man Who Went to the Moon - Twice by Howard Rodman ~ Faith of Our Fathers by Philip K. Dick ~ The Jigsaw Man by Larry Niven ~ Gonna Roll the Bones by Fritz Leiber ~ Lord Randy, My Son by Joe L. Hensley ~ Eutopia by Poul Anderson ~ Incident in Moderan and The Escaping by David R. Bunch ~ The Doll-House by James Cross ~ Sex and/or Mr. Morrison by Carol Emshwiller ~ Shall the Dust Praise Thee? by Damon Knight ~ If All Men Were Brothers, Would You Let One Marry Your Sister? by Theodore Sturgeon ~ What Happened to Auguste Clarot? by Larry Eisenberg ~ Ersatz by Henry Slesar ~ Go, Go, Go, Said the Bird by Sonya Dorman ~ The Happy Breed by John Sladek ~ Encounter with a Hick by Jonathan Brand ~ From the Government Printing Office by Kris Neville ~ Land of the Great Horses by R. A. Lafferty ~ The Recognition by J. G. Ballard ~ Judas by John Brunner ~ Test to Destruction by Keith Laumer ~ Carcinoma Angels by Norman Spinrad ~ Auto-da-Fé by Roger Zelazny ~ Aye, and Gomorrah by Samuel R. Delany
