Re: RARA-AVIS: Hardboiled anthologies

Belatedly joining the anthologies discussion, I'm curious. How does one go about putting together an anthology? Do the editors simply choose stories they like and then go around seeking permission to include, or does the publisher deal with permissions, and how are royalties handled? It seems
(from the outside, at least) like an easy way to publish a book: find a bunch of stories you like and shove 'em between covers. Who stands to gain more, the editors or the collective original writers? (Financially speaking.)
