Edited and with an introduction and notes by Carr.

''it was as an editor that he became and remained best known; a reading of his various anthology series over the two decades from 1964 constitutes a perusal of much of the best short sf published during those important years; from 1964-1971 he worked with Donald A Wollheim at Ace Books, where he was responsible for the highly successful Ace Special series, whose most famous original publications were probably R A Lafferty's Past Master (1968), Ursula K Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness (1969) and Alexei Panshin's Rite of Passage . He co-edited seven annual best-of-the-year Anthologies with Wollheim, beginning with World's Best Science Fiction: 1965, and initiated the Universe series of original anthologies. After leaving Ace and becoming a freelance editor, Carr continued to produce a best-of-the-year anthology on his own in competition with Wollheim's, commencing with The Best Science Fiction of the Year (anth 1972) and continuing through 1987; during its run, this series was generally regarded as the best of the annual compilations. Universe continued, although it changed publishers more than once; and with The Year's Finest Fantasy (anth 1978) Carr started a Fantasy annual, which was less successful'' (Malcolm J. Edwards & John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
