Accidental Flight by F. L. Wallace
"Outcasts of a society of physically perfect people, they couldn't stay and they couldn't go home again—yet there had to be some escape for them. Oddly enough, there was!"
"Tabby" by Winston K. Marks
"Tabby was peculiar, of course, but seemed harmless: just a little green fly that couldn't even protect itself from ordinary spiders. So the spiders fed, and grew, and fed, and grew...."
"Stalemate" by Basil Wells
"The rules of a duel between gentlemen are quite different from the rules of war between nations. Is it because gentlemen do not fight wars, or is it that men in war cease to be gentlemen?"
"The Hated" by Frederik Pohl (as by Paul Flehr)
"After space, there was always one more river to cross ... the far side of hatred and murder!"
