One of those weird years?

I hope so anyway, because this series is one that:
A. I haven't read before, this being the first
B. Seems full of a lot of stories I did not read elsewhere.
Every anthology has some stories a reader will not dig, However, so far, I'm skipping every story in here.
Some years Editors or writers get on an existential trip, and I can't do well with those being an Aspie.
