New Dimensions 1 is an anthology of original science fiction stories edited by American writer Robert Silverberg, published in hardcover by Doubleday Books in 1971 and reprinted in paperback by Avon Books in 1973. While Silverberg had previously compiled several reprint anthologies, New Dimensions 1 was the first anthology of original work he edited. It placed second in the annual Locus Poll for best original anthology.[1]


"Vaster Than Empires and More Slow", "A Special Kind of Morning", and "Sky" were nominated for the Hugo Award. "A Special Kind of Morning" was also nominated for the Nebula Award.[2]


Theodore Sturgeon praised Silverberg's selection of stories, saying "His writers shine in the dark."[3]
