A Handful Of Short Stories
Tom Easton, "The Reference Library" IN Analog, Sept, 1983.
Easton refers to the Maurai History, three short stories followed later by one long novel:
"The Sky People" (1959);
Orion Shall Rise (1983).
There Will Be Time (1973) is also connected.
Another example of short stories followed by a novel might be the Ythrians series within Anderson's Technic History. However, the dates of the works featuring Ythrian show that mostly they resulted from a single burst of creativity:
"Wings of Victory" (1972);
"The Problem of Pain" (1973);
"Rescue on Avalon" (1973);
The People Of The Wind (1973);
The Day Of Their Return (1973);
The Earth Book Of Stormgate (1978).
A very productive period especially if we check the bibliographies, which I am not going to do right now, to see what else Anderson was writing at that time.
