Like its predecessor, Again, Dangerous Visions, and many of the collected stories, have received awards recognition. "The Word for World is Forest", by Ursula K. Le Guin, won the 1973 Hugo for Best Novella.[1] "When It Changed", by Joanna Russ, won a 1972 Nebula Award for Best Short Story.[2] Harlan Ellison was recognized with a special Hugo Award for anthologizing, his second special award, in 1972.[3]

Again, Dangerous Visions was released as a two-volume paperback edition by Signet in the United States, and by Pan in the United Kingdom. A sequel was planned, The Last Dangerous Visions, but was never published in Elison's lifetime. It is now announced for release in 2024.

The first printing was a hardback edition of 6,500 copies.[4]



Three writers are each represented by two or three stories with a group title. Each story or group of stories is preceded by an introduction written by Ellison and followed by an afterword written by the author.
