Default Re: Collecting Highlight (44) - The Ship Who Sang

I'm pretty sure that it is just a re-titling of the story...I know I've read that somewhere...

Ah, it's in the Hargreaves biblio:

The Ship Who Dissembled is not a new story but a retitling of "The Ship Who Disappeared". The title was changed by the author when the story was included in The Ship Who Sang.

The Ship Who Disappeared was printed in the French version of Galaxy, Galaxie, in Apr 1970, so clearly the Worlds of If and Galaxy share content. Checking the contents page of a copy of both Galaxy and World of If reveals they are both owned by the same publishing house, Universal Publishing and Distributing Corporation. So it seems your surmise there was correct!
