tl,dr: No need to read.
It's totally wrong to say don't read but in this age, we're bombarded with information and we need to be picky on what we read. Unfortunately, this series isn't one of them.
- It seems that authors didn't have an urge to tell a story but kindly invited by an editor. All of them are doers so jumped into it and/or couldn't refuse the kind request but as a result, stories are too stretched to be something.
- They aren't science fiction and so not about future, or forward as advertised.
- They are quite short, around 50 pages, and there isn't enough space to build a good narrative and background and this format isn't compatible with the style of previous works of authors.
