Not a complaint, just a question!

I've just started exploring the short science fiction story collections and discovered that one story ("Bread Overhead") appears in both of the first two of them. I started poking around and found a lot of duplication (for example, "Vanishing Point" is in eight collections, often back-to-back ones). So how were the stories chosen, faves of the readers?

They sure are fun, reminds me of the books I read in the 70's.

Yes - readers choose what they'd like to read for collections, as long as they're public domain. Same with solos. Same with projects BCs decide to open up as group projects. :)

We do try to avoid having any duplications in a single project. But back-to-back collection duplications are not unusual. We have 19 versions of Poe's Tell-Tale Heart in a variety of collections. :)

If it's worth listening to it's worth listening to again I suppose!

It's always interesting to hear another person's interpretation of the text :D .
