Asimov's Extraterrestrials (The Dragon Books)

Extraterrestrials - Isaac Asimov, Keith Laumer, Piers Anthony, Eric Frank Russell, Frank Belknap Long, R.A. Lafferty, J.F. Bone, Edward D. Hoch, Zenna Henderson, Murray Leinster, James Edwin Gunn, Martin H. Greenburg, Charles G. Waugh A anthology of eleven science fiction short stories, selected and introduced by Isaac Asimov. The book is published under the Dragon Books imprint which was a children's books publisher. The book is marked with a 'red' dragon - which categorises it as a book for 8 year olds and above.

I was definitely over 8 when I read the book, heck it wasn't published until I was 16, and while not the most earth shattering collection of science fiction in the world ever by a long shot, the collection comprises a good selection of well told stories for children.
