The Hugo Winners 1968-1970, ed Isaac Asimov, Sphere, 1973 (orig ‘The Hugo Winners Volume II’ Doubleday 1971)

Introduction

‘Hugo Winners Volume II’ followed the first collection of award-winners, but was published in two separate volumes in paperback in the UK in order to keep each volume down to a reasonable size.

Introduced, as was the first volume, by Isaac Asimov. The biggest ego in SF uses the introduction to regale the reader with regard to his editorship of the volumes, and his own two Hugos.
