Hit and miss. But the hits shine.

The collection isn't as good as his novel, "Galveston", but that's to be expected. These are his earliest published works. Keep that in mind and you can wash over their shortcomings.
Overall, they're hit and miss. But the hits shine. '1987, The Races' is a modern classic: a textbook example of how to write a short story.
