I would agree that your choice should be linked to the parts of the story which impact on you the most. I would select from "The Vulture Eye", 'The Madman in the Darkness", "Retribution", "The Pulse" or "The Tortured Man". The last suggestion could be ambiguous: both the old man and the narrator are tortured in the story.
