Highly regarded, if decidedly conservative, sf reprint Anthology sequence edited by Kingsley Amis (whom see) and Robert Conquest. Five volumes, 1964-1966. The fiction is drawn almost entirely from the US magazines, with just two selections from New Worlds. A single exception to the reprints-only rule is Mark Rose's "We Would See a Sign" in Spectrum III: A Third Science Fiction Anthology (anth 1963), a brief, bleak glimpse of Post-Holocaust existence. The verse epigraphs for each volume are by Conquest (whom see), and four of the five (omitting #1 for some reason) are collected as "Spectra" in his The Abomination of Moab (coll 1979). [DRL]
