Once one of the leading writers and critics in science fiction, today Blish is largely forgotten except for his adaptations of the original Star Trek series (and the first original novel, Spock Must Die). But at one time he was well known for his Cities in Flight series, his Seedling Stars stories, and the Hugo winning A Case of Conscience. Editor James Mann and NESFA Press provide a very attractive volume with 17 stories (about 500 pages of fiction), a sample of Blish's criticism, and an introductory essay by Gregory Feeley for not much more money than your typical hardcover.

From official release/information:

Product Description: This collection includes a number of Blish's greatest stories, including several from his "Cities in Flight" sequence, the original novella of "A Case of Conscience," "Surface Tension," (voted as one of the best stories ever by the Science Fiction Writers of America) and his great werewolf story, "There Shall Be No Darkness." It also features an essay in which he dissects the New Wave-from the point of view of someone who understood and appreciated modernist literature--and two poems.
