kdp select and short stories

I have stories that were previously published in anthologies and books. These "used" stories are sitting around doing nothing. So I'm publishing them on kdp because a previously published story sitting around doing nothing doesn't do me any good. I have the rights to my stories under the terms of the contracts I have signed. So that's all kosher.

My question is about kdp select. These short stories exist in other media--anthologies and magazines.

Can I or should I not sign up for kdp select?

Or is there a conflict between my solo kdp story and this story still existing within these other media which are for sale in other venues that would prevent joining kdp select?

Thanks

Are the anthologies and magazines print or in the form of ebooks? If print, you're fine (since you say you have your rights back).

But you cannot put an ebook or e-story into KDP Select if it is available in ebook format anywhere else. Good luck!

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, the books and anthologies are in print and e-book formats.

So, I will not be joining kdp select then.
