This Classic story is always credited to both Kuttner and Moore. The pename was used for that. Wild speculation it is otherwise. I'm fan of both solo books and not read their co-written stories yet.Fifth, a 5/5 story -- "Vintage Season," credited to Lawrence O'Donnell in Treasury of Science Fiction (1948), its first hardcover appearance.
My understanding is that it is mostly by C. L. Moore, although sometimes husband Henry Kuttner is mentioned as co-author.
The frequently-mentioned euphoric drink relates to a theme concerned with sensation-seeking and so is more than just an incidental element of the plot.
One could discuss the topic of antiquarianism or even the much larger topic of the uses of history as suggested by "Vintage Season."
And one could discuss the craft of science fiction writing -- how an author deals with the peculiar challenges thereof -- with reference to this story, e.g. management of point of view and irony, use of authenticating descriptive detail, etc.
Actually, it looks like "Vintage Season" is credited just to Moore in The Best of C. L. Moore:This Classic story ["Vintage Season"] is always credited to both Kuttner and Moore.

Other wise this thread is great and I wish had one of these anthologies. I would like to find less know pulp Era SF authors of real quality.
Since you took the trouble to list those stories, I'll try some of them. I doubt I have read more than a very few of them, so when I get to some of these, my impression of Long as a writer may improve.Sorry I didn't get back sooner with that list of Long's stories, but I've been going through another time when, well, time was extremely pressing.
