Compiled by David Lambert and Carol Phillips

33Wrong-Way Street1965-04Time Travel/Parallel Universe Summary
Ebook
A stand-alone time-travel story. Niven credits his editor, Fred Pohl, with a great deal of help with this story: "He published my second story, "Wrong Way Street," in Galaxy. The title is his. He felt it needed a new first chapter for coherency, and he wrote that too."
Note that the story reappears in Convergent Series without the hyphen in the title.44One Face1965-06Known Space: Prototype Summary

6662Recipes1973-00non-fiction [all] From Amazon.com: "Anne McCaffrey's cookbook, featuring real (you can cook them) recipes created by science fiction and fantasy writers such as Harlan Ellison, Ursula K. Le Guin, Avram Davidson and of course Anne McCaffrey herself. Mixed in with the recipes are stories and anecdotes about how they were created - some longer than the recipes!" This classic from 1973 was revised and re-released by Wildside Press in 1992. The included Niven recipes (irish coffee and others) seem to be intended for a bartender rather than a chef, but then that's the role Niven often finds himself performing at conventions. 6469Defenseless Dead, The1973-00Known Space: Gil Hamilton Summary
"Corpsicles" and an unexpected hiding place for an organlegger6559Flash Crowd1973-00Flash Crowd/Teleportation Summary
This story introduced "flash crowds," instant mobs that are a by-product of cheap, worldwide teleportation technology. Niven wrote several sequels to this story, further addressing the various issues posed by instantaneous travel (and suggesting interesting solutions).
Jansen is spelled "Jensen" in the Flight of the Horse printing.
This story was recently expanded and re-published as Red Tide
