Old Venus

I have a story in this collection. I've read a review of Old Venus and the entire anthology sounds pretty nifty. I'm reasonably happy with my story, which is about the last Soviet Socialist Republic, which is surviving -- just barely -- on a Venus like the planet in the old pulps: wet and covered with jungle and full of large, dangerous, dinosaur-like animals.

Apparently a fair number of the writers picked up on the fact that the first space craft to reach Venus was Soviet and imagined the Soviet Union on a habitable planet. (We didn't know Venus was a hellhole till the first space craft reached it. What if it had found a different place?)
