It was reprinted in paperback in 1954 by Permabooks, under the title Outsiders: Children of Wonder. The only anthology edited by Tenn, its stories feature children with superhuman or supernatural talents.


"The Words of Guru" originally carried the "Kenneth Falconer" byline. "The Piper's Son" originally carried the "Lewis Padgett" byline.[1]


P. Schuyler Miller reviewed the anthology favorably in Astounding, saying it included "both top-notch stories and good but routine items, fairly representative of the field."[2]
