  • Cover: Shot in the Dark by Herman E. Bischoff
  • Notes:
    • "Published January 1950 on copyright page."
    • Stated 2nd printing. There is no amendment to the publication statement (above) from the first printing, so we must presume they did two printings in the same month. This printing is listed here as if the publication date were Jan. 31, but this date is only used to order this book properly with respect to the first printing. Actually days of publication of the two printings are not known.
    • The story by Stephen Vincent Benét correctly spells his name in the ToC, but incorrectly spells it "Benčt" at the story title page. (But we do not make variants for this level of detail.)
