Wikipedia claims that "Pageant Wagon" by Orson Scott Card has only ever been in the short story collection The Folk of the Fringe (1989). This is wrong, as I've read it, and I've never read an OSR short story collection. I can even remember exactly when and where I read it, but not the name of the short story collection. So, what other short story collection has it been in? Possibly under another name?

My recollection of the story matches Wikipedia exactly, so I'm sure it is the same story, and I remember it being OSC. I read it in the summer of 2010 based on where I was living, and I'd just finished Wasteland: Stories of the Apocalypse, and was very surprised at the coincidence that the sequel to Salvage was one of the first stories in this collection. The theme of the collection may have been apocalyptic in nature, as I was on post-apoc streak just then, but it may also have been general science fiction. The problem is most of the stories I remember, seem to be from Wasteland, not whatever this collection was.
I don't think it was a really old collection, so it probably came out in the mid-late 2000s, thought not after summer 2010 of course.
So, does anyone have any idea what this short story collection might have been? Thank you.
