    A posthumous collection of short stories by Cyril M. Kornbluth, who died in 1958. Originally published under the pseudonym Cecil Corwin. Edited by James Blish and released in 1970 by Dell Publishing.

    Both the author’s name and the main title get a multi-color treatment in Montgomery Pousse Cafe (1969). The subtitle uses narrow slab-serif caps with a 3-dimensional effect. This face goes back to the 1830s. It was available from PLINC as Sunset and is also known as Broadcast today. The range is completed by caps from Broadway (1927) and Lightline Gothic (1908).
