Isaac Asimov Presents The Great SF Stories 11 (1949)

It's been long enough since I read this anthology that I don't specifically remember any of the stories.

Science Fiction Adventures In Dimension, edited by Groff Conklin

Ditto.

Deep Space by Eric Frank Russell

Ditto, tho' this is a collection. (Abridged from the original collection.)

The Falling Torch by Algis Budrys

Nominally about freeing an occupied Earth, actually about Budrys' father and occupied Lithuania. Contains a lot of political philosophy, some minor action, and a complete unwillingness to deal with the multi-year journey from Alpha Centauri to Earth. (The story is explicit about it taking years, but skips over it like it was a week or so.)

Get Off The Unicorn by Anne McCaffrey

A re-read. Some good stories, some whose sexual politics have slid into "completely creepy" over the decades.
