That said, I found the fourth edition a great disappointment, compared with the many other anthologies of short stories I have read. I rated each story from 5 to 0: five stories rated 5, six rated 4, eight rated 3, nine rated 2, six rated 1, and eight rated 0 – an overall average of just over 2. Some of this is the result of the low rating I gave to experimental or difficult stories which I did not appreciate but which it may be necessary to include in such a course, and the editors admitted that, for purposes of comparison, they had included some “that are clearly inferior”. The first 28 of the stories were followed by questions about them; the remaining 15 stories were not.
