Anthology Deathmatch

This idea is stolen with permission from secritcrush.

I've got a bunch of anthologies sitting on the bookshelf that I haven't read in years, so perhaps it's time to read them again. It's time for an anthology smackdown!

As with secritcrush's, there will be three rounds where two anthologies go head to head, and then I'll pick the overall winner.

To make things sporting, I'm leaving out The Hugo Awards Volumes I & II (edited by Isaac Asimov), because that won secritcrush's Anthology Thunderdome and would almost certainly win mine. So here is a poll! Do not let not lack of knowledge of the books keep you from voting in it.

Poll #924556 Do you know what I'll like?
