- Is there any anthology readily available in which this story can be found?
Other than the out-of-print collection with that same title?

fact that, as Wendell pointed out, the title is "The Ones Who Walk Away
from Omelas", Le Guin never had a collection called that. The out-of-print
collection it's in is _The Wind's Twelve Quarters_. Which should, however,

fairly recent anthology, containing the story, which is in print is one not
on Wendell's list: _Treasures of Fantasy_ ed. Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman,
and Martin H. Greenberg.

I don't know what source Wendell used, but mine is the invaluable Locus
