The Store of the Worlds and The Mnemone are my two favorites. A Wind is Rising rocks on, as well. I haven't actually read but one of Bob's stories that I didn't like, Warm. All the others are more than ducky with me.

Coming for Worldcon:
The Masque of Maņana
"This volume contains the major short science fiction of Robert Sheckley"
http://nesfa.org/press/Books/Sheckley-2.html

Have fun arguing over the ToC!

The tentative ToC of The Masque of Maņana looks quite impressive. The following three classics seem to be missing, however:

The Specialist
If the Red Slayer
The Odor of Thought

'Pas de Trois of the Chef and the Waiter and the Customer' is sheer genius - and not even SF!
