World of Wonder is an anthology of science fiction and fantasy stories edited by Fletcher Pratt, published in hardcover by Twayne in 1951. No subsequent editions were issued.[1]



New York Times reviewer Villiers Gerson, despite describing the contents as "excellent stories," faulted the anthology because the diversity of the stories "obscures the sharp line between fantasy and its more popular sibling, science fiction," and because many of the stories had previously been anthologized.[3]
