For over two decades, my brother in law has been replacing paperbacks from his childhood book collection with hardbacks. Thanks to the Internet and the SciFi book club he has gotten everything on his list, save for one:

The 1979 Annual World's Best SF edited by Wolheim.

He has every other one in the series in hardback. The odd thing is that we have never seen the 1979 even for sale. We assume it does not exist in hardback.

I'm curious if anyone has information on this - if the 1979 hardcover exists or not - and if not, why?

It just would be nice to have an answer to the mystery.

Dear David,

The 1979 Wollheim SF Year's Best does indeed exist. I have an SFBC edition. Just keep searching and you'll eventually run across it. :-)

Best,
Dave

Pardon me. I meant to type "Dear, Daniel." It's early in the morning, I'm not fully awake yet and misread your name. Sorry about that.

Wow. I thought I had all of these. I too am missing 1979.

I must with all humility correct myself in my statement that I had an SFBC copy of the 1979 DAW Year's Best. I've just moved about six weeks ago. All my books and magazines have been in storage until a week ago. I now (with much embarrassment) see that while I do have a copy of said book, it is only the paperback DAW '79 Year's Best, and not an SFBC hardcover edition.

I therefore have no idea if there was any hc edition for that year from the SFBC.

I offer sincere apologies for my failing memory, and ask forgiveness. I really could have sworn I had said hc, and am shaking my head in disbelief that I inadvertantly led anyone astray.

Dave

Hmmm, well that's okay. We still haven't found any around, so the mystery continues.
