Science-Fiction Adventures in Dimension is an anthology of science fiction stories edited by Groff Conklin, first published by Vanguard Press in hardcover in 1953. An abridged edition was issued by Grayson & Grayson in the UK, and an abridged paperback edition, with a different selection of stories from the original, was issued by Berkley Books; both abridgments carried unhyphenated titles.[1]

Contents[edit]

"Castaway" originally carried the byline "George Whitley". "The Flight That Failed" was originally credited to Hull alone. "Endowment Policy" originally carried the "Lewis Padgett" byline. "Peter Cartur" and "Roger Flint Young" were pseudonyms of Peter Grainger.[2][3]

Reception[edit]

P. Schuyler Miller found Conklin to be "at his very best form" in compiling this volume, which he termed "the top anthology of 1953."[4]
