Some 'R is for Rocket' back in print!

A while ago, I listed what books I consider classics, and those included one particularly great book from Ray Bradbury, R is for Rocket. It's a collection of short stories of the kind that I think all SF should be: Not SciFi as a genre, but rather other kinds of stories, with SciFi as a device used for telling it.

Back then I pointed out that this book is apparently out of print, but just now I found that there is a book called Bradbury Classic Stories 1, which collects at least some of the stories from this great collection.

If anyone who owns this book happens to be reading this, I'd be grateful if you could let me know which ones it contains, by leaving a comment. But anyway, I trust this is a great book, so I recommend those of you who couldn't get the original at least get this one and enjoy some of the greatest Bradbury stories I've read so far.
