Nova Mob, Mar 9th – Perry Middlemiss on Short SF in 1965.

Perry plans to look at all the short SF/F published in 1965. What do you think are the best picks?
For what it’s worth, The World’s Best SF 1966 published these stories:

“Sunjammer” (Arthur C. Clarke); “Calling Dr. Clockwork” (Ron Goulart); “Becalmed in Hell” (Larry Niven); “Apartness” (Vernor Vinge); “Over the River and Through the Woods” (Clifford D. Simak); “Planet of Forgetting” (James H. Schmitz); “‘Repent, Harlequin!’ Said the Ticktockman” (Harlan Ellison); “The Decision Makers” (Joseph L. Green); “Traveler’s Rest” (David I. Masson); “Uncollected Works” (Lin Carter); “Vanishing Point” (Jonathan Brand); “In Our Block” (R. A. Lafferty); “Masque of the Red Shift” (Fred Saberhagen); “The Captive Djinn” (Christopher Anvil); “The Good New Days” (Fritz Leiber)

Note: Algis Budrys found the anthology unimpressive, saying that one-third of the stories “will not on inspection seem to be outstanding”.
