Straight B's. King's first collection, but certainly not his best.

Straight As here. This is classic '70s unbridled King. Love it.

I've read most, but not all of the stories. So, in fairness, I had to vote never read. But, on the quality of the stories that I have read, this was not a very memorable collection for me.

The Cat from Hell that was finally included in Just After Sunset would be a good fit here. And perhaps also The Night of the Tiger and A Man With a Belly. But oh well...
