The stories I actually liked:

For the Love of a Man by Jack London
Memoirs of a Yellow Dog by O. Henry
The Coming of Lad by Albert Payson Terhune
The Voice of Bugle Ann by Mackinlay Kantor
Slipstream by Corey Ford
Moses by Walter D. Edmonds
Blood Will Tell by Don Marquis
The Emissary by Ray Bradbury

Eight stories of thirty-one isn't a great ratio.
