I think the best versions (most accurate typographically) are probably the more recent in the omnibus editions. Some of them have been awful. It was originally written for Terry Carr's 'adult' line of Ace Specials. We both knew at the time that sf readers pretty much stopped reading the stuff by the time they got to college age (say 18-21) and we both felt there was room for sf which appealed to that older readership. Terry's books were deliberately aimed at readers of 18 and up. We assumed such readers were sophisticated, smart and generally well-read. I think we were right. There are a lot more now!
