A bunch of books

Congratulations! You have one of the most complete listing on the internet of Clifford D. Simak's Science Fiction Short Stories. Here you will find a listing of all of his stories and where to find them. Each of the stories is followed by a comprehensive listing of where to locate them in magazines and anthologies that were published in English. I have only included lisitngs for the major North American magazines at this time but there are some listings for other magazines from around the world if they are not reprints of American editions (such as Astounding). All listings for anthologies are for those from around the world where the story has been printed in English. As an added treat, you can pass your mouse over the title of the magazine or anthology and view an image of the magazine or book. Java Scripts must be enabled in your browser. Please be patient while the pages load all of the graphics.

NOTE: THERE IS A NEW WEBSITE DEDICATED TO THE WORK OF CLIFFORD SIMAK THAT COVERS RELEASES IN MANY DIFFERENT COUNTRIES. IN MANY WAYS IT IS FAR SUPERIOR TO MY WEBSITE BUT I HAVE BEEN ENCOURAGED BY OTHERS TO KEEP MY WEBSITE GOING. THE NEW WEBSITE IS: Clifford D. Simak - The International Bibliography. CLICKING ON THE NAME OF THE WEBSITE WILL TAKE YOU THERE.

I am sorry that my last update was almost two years ago in March of 2015. Life gets in the way. Well, a new year and a new update. Updated January 3, 2017. There have been quite a few new releases since 2015. Many include reprints of public domain stories like "Hellhounds of the Cosmos", "Project Mastodon" and "The Street That Wasn't There". You can check those listings individually and each new listing will have a new next to it. Other updates include three great new releases from Open Road Media. This company is trying to put back into print many of Simaks' great science fiction stories as well as some of his war and western stories. Their first release, "I Am Crying All Inside And Other Stories" included "I had no head and my eyes were floating way up in the air" which was submitted in the 1970s for publication in Harlan Ellison's "The Last Dangerous Visions" but which never saw publication...until now. Here's the contents listing, including non-sci-fi titles, for all three volumes:


There are currently nine volumes in the Open Road Media series but only the three listed above have been issued in paperback form. The others are available in Kindle format.

Between January 3rd and January 17th, 2017, I updated many of the pictures and fixed a few errors in my listings. I have also added reference to UK or Australia listings for science fiction magazines but only included pictures where the magazine cover differed significantly from the USA cover. Three other quick updates I also want to mention:

  • Science Fiction Gems, Volume Twelve, Armchair Fiction & Music, September 25, 2016 ("The Fence")
  • Adventure House Presents: Thrilling Wonder Stories - December, 1938, Adventure House, December 10, 2016 ("The Loot of Time")
  • Things From Outer Space, ed. Hank Davis, Baen, August 23, 2016 ("Operation Stinky")

I have removed the new image for items that have been listed for more than a month. This way, each month, I will only include the new beside images or entries newly listed over the past 30 days with the exception when I have updated the image with a better one.


I have tried to separate the listing of all of the alternate titles for each story as well. If the story appears under an alternate title it will have its own listing under that alternate title and will give references to magazines or anthologies only where it appeared under that alternate title. The reference immediately following each short story title is for the first appearance of that title.


I have had to break the listing over six pages as there are over 500 images availabe at present and each of these are preloaded with the page. To save on loading time the six volumes you see above can be clicked on to view the listings. I hope to make available a complete listing for download in PDF format as a text only file. I will also continue to update these pages with new images when they become available. Where there are no images available the text will not be highlighted. If you have images that I do not have or are aware of listings I do not have for a particular story then please email me at scott@falseducks.com and I will update the images.


Here's an example. Pass your mouse over any of the highlighted links, (do not click links), and you will view an image of the magazine or book.


I have also included some notes on some stories which will be followed by a symbol:*. You can click these links to view the notes or scroll to the bottom of the page to read the notes.
