Invasion From Mars

Here's an interesting anthology from paperback pioneer Dell. Published in 1949, it's 191 pages of some of the best SF to date;

 Invasion from Mars • Howard Koch
The Green Hills of Earth • Robert A. Heinlein
 Zero Hour • Ray Bradbury
Expedition • Anthony Boucher
Incident on Calypso • Murray Leinster
The Star Mouse [Mitkey] • Fredric Brown
The Castaway [as by George Danzell] • Nelson S. Bond
Victory Unintentional • Isaac Asimov
 Farewell to Eden • Theodore Sturgeon
 The Million-Year Picnic • Ray Bradbury

Strange as it seems, Bradbury was considered the heavyweight talent in 1949.
