Like a lot of people, I excitedly downloaded the Retro Hugo Voter Packet when it became available this week; and like a lot of people, I was sorry that it didn't include more of the finalists in the fiction categories. Unlike a lot of people, I'm aware of the hard work and immense difficulties faced by the Hugo team in assembling it, and shared some of their frustration in tracking down permissions and reproducible copies. One can make a case to the publishers and authors of today that including their work in the Hugo voter packet is a gain for them in terms of future sales; it's rather more difficult to make that case convincingly for work that has been on sale since 1938 (or not, in a couple of cases), and whose authors are no longer in a state to care about future sales.

Thanks to ISFDB, I have compiled this list of all of the publications including the finalists in the short fiction categories, including the ISBN numbers where they exist. You may well find, as I did, that you already have some of the relevant anthologies on the shelves - particularly for the much-collected "Who Goes There", "Pigeons from Hell" and "Helen O'Loy". A couple of the stories can also be found online; I haven't dug very deeply (the links to "Hollywood on the Moon" are copied from the Retro Hugo voter packet). Myself, I was able to acquire Science Fiction: The Great Years, eds. Carol Pohl and Frederik Pohl, Sleepers of Mars, by John Wyndham, and The Autumn Land and Other Stories, by Clifford D. Simak, without too much difficulty or cost. I do hope that my making this post doesn't suddenly drive prices up!

Anyway, here you are. Пожалуйста!

Thanks for doing the google work for this!

Thanks so much for this (I was able to pick up Science Fiction: The Great Years for 1p plus P&P, and it looks like there are quite a few copies at that price).
Two more links -- no idea if these are legal, but they're online and I'll presume so (and I don't feel too bad if not, given that the authors involved are long dead and the stories 75 years old).

My library actually has a lot of those omnibuses. I can find all but the John Wyndham story. So, that's a very good list! Thank you!
