Science Fiction Terror Tales is an anthology of science fiction horror short stories edited by Groff Conklin. It was first published in hardcover by Gnome Press in January 1955; it was reprinted in June 1971. The first British edition was published under the alternate title Possible Tomorrows in hardcover by Sidgwick & Jackson in June 1972; a paperback edition was issued by Coronet under the same title in September 1973. It was later gathered together with the Donald A. Wollheim-edited anthology Trilogy of the Future into the omnibus anthology Science Fiction Special 9 (Sidgwick & Jackson, April 1974).[1]

The book collects fifteen novelettes and short stories by various science fiction authors, together with an introduction by the editor. The stories were previously published from 1936-1954 in the magazines Other Worlds, Astounding, Galaxy Science Fiction, Fantasy and Science Fiction, Thrilling Wonder Stories, Unknown and Universe.[1]
