If the short stories had entered the public domain, that might explain the publisher's reluctance to explain how they have the rights, they might not want people to realize it is public domain, and that they could just get it for free.

One of the one-star reviews claimed it was a priate copy because it didn't Simak's introduction from the 1972 edition. But this actually strengthens the publisher's claim, if they had pirated it, there would have been no reason not to include his introduction. But if the short stories are public domain, the introduction to the 1972 version would still be under copyright, and thus they couldn't include it.
