Co-operate - or Else! by A.E. Van Vogt
Reason by Isaac Asimov
Arena by Frederic Brown
Fireproof by Hal Clement
The Last Objective by Paul Carter
Huddling Place by Clifford D. Simak
Hobbyist by Eric Frank Russell
The Xi Effect by Philip Latham

Science fiction stories from the 1940s. I've definitely read "Reason" before, which is an amusing story about a robot who finds God. I may also have read "Arena", but maybe I've just read or watched something similar in the past. Old collections of science fiction stories are one of my favourite things to find at BookCrossing meetings. ( )
