I didn't like all stories equally. I loved the plot of "Finding Farber" also the extravagant characters. The style was original, I found gems like "Hair like a half-breed Pekingese on a bad day."
My other favourite was Norma's adventure on the planet of gurgs. I was wondering if I were in the shoes of Norma: would I want to go back to a deserted Earth, or stay in the relative comfort and safety of the alien zoo. Finally I decided I would go back with Norma, and I was glad she did just like that, because it turned out that... oh, that would be spoiler, you must read the story yourself. ;)
I also would love to read more stories like "Adam". In spite of the time and the setting the characters were like ordinary people in extraordinary situation, which made the story real.
In some stories I felt like something was missing. Besides the interesting plot and compelling characters, a twist would the good story make an excellent one. Especially I felt "The Yellow Stone" unfinished. (Dear T. M., what happened after that?)
I don't know if the stories were in the order they've been written, but I sensed an improvement in the writing towards the end.
