The Red Peri is a collection of science fiction short stories by author Stanley G. Weinbaum. It was first published in 1952 by Fantasy Press in an edition of 1,732 copies. The stories originally appeared in the magazines Amazing Stories, Astounding and Thrilling Wonder Stories.



Boucher and McComas, although noting that The Red Peri was "a collection of Weinbaum's lesser work," still praised it as an interesting selection of work from "one of the most original and stimulating forerunners of contemporary science fiction."[1] P. Schuyler Miller, similarly noting that Weinbaum's best work had already been collected in A Martian Odyssey and Others, found nevertheless that "Any of these stories would stand up today."[2]
