    I'm not sure you shouldn't blame the publishers of the edition you have. My experience with most earlier Haining anthos is that they had at least reasonable previous publication credits, but some of the instant remainder publishers, and entirely too many of the typical trade publishers these days, try to slight this kind of information as much as possible.
