Default Chance for Short Story collectors (German language short story)

Something cropped up on German eBay which I think is unusual enough to post about here in case somebody might want to bid.

It is a copy of Das große Märchen Lesebuch der Fantasy (The Big Reading Book of Fairy Tales of Fantasy; doesn'really translate).

I wrote the seller to ask which Anne McCaffrey short story was in there and it truned out to be Die Suche eines vernünftigen Mannes (The Quest of a Sensible Man), 46 pages long.

The book stands at a very reasonable euro 2.95 (about 4 dollars) ex postage.

Here's the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=7029488385

Hmm, I wonder if it's a German printing of Once Upon a Time: A Treasury of Modern Fairy Tales, which does contain Quest of a Sensible Man. If the stories are all the same it could be.

I just checked a few catalogues, and it is a translation of the same book.

Ah, thanks! I did wonder if it was the same when I saw the untranslateable translation of the title.
