Four for Tomorrow is the first story collection by Roger Zelazny, published in paperback by Ace Books in 1967. British hardcover and paperback editions followed in 1969, under the title A Rose for Ecclesiastes. The first American hardcover was issued in the Garland Library of Science Fiction in 1975. A French translation appeared in 1980 (as Une rose pour l'Ecclésiaste). Paperback reissues continued from Ace and later from Baen Books into the 1990s.[1]


"The Doors of His Face, the Lamps of His Mouth" won the Nebula Award and was nominated for the Hugo. "A Rose for Ecclesiastes" was nominated for the Hugo.[2][3]


Judith Merril rated the collection "what may well prove the best reading-buy of 1967".[4] P. Schuyler Miller similarly described it as "certainly going to be one of the 'must' books" of the year.[5]
