I’m hoping someone can identify a short anthology of sci-fi stories I read as a fourth or fifth-grader, around 1971. It was probably published specifically for younger readers.
I’m certain it included “The Last Command” by Keith Laumer and “Puppet Show” by Fredric Brown. It’s probably where I read “Of Missing Persons” by Jack Finney as well.
This might have also been where I discovered Heinlein’s “The Roads Must Roll”, but I’m not sure about this one at all.
There were probably five or six other stories in the collection that I don’t remember or maybe never read - but as I remember it wasn’t a very large collection. I don’t remember the cover either, although I have the feeling I might recognize it if I saw it.
Although the stories in it obviously pre-date the actual book, I’m certain the book would have be purchased new (probably from a drug-store book rack) in the early seventies.
