Product Details

Praise

“[Matheson is] the author who influenced me most as a writer.” -Stephen King

“He was a giant, and YOU KNOW HIS STORIES, even if you think you don’t.”-Neil Gaiman

“Richard Matheson’s ironic and iconic imagination created seminal science-fiction stories . . . For me, he is in the same category as Bradbury and Asimov.” -Steven Spielberg

“[I] never met Richard Matheson, but his stories have been life companions. Books are human souls, in analog form. Go read his.” -Joe Hill

“Perhaps no other author living is as responsible for chilling a generation with tantalizing nightmare visions.” The New York Times

“Richard Matheson is one of the great names in American terror fiction.” The Philadelphia Inquirer

“[Matheson has] been an inspiration to me and to so many. He is a legend himself.” -Anne Rice

“We’re all a lot richer to have Richard Matheson.” -Dean Koontz

“[Matheson is] one of the most important writers of the 20th century.” -Ray Bradbury 

“Richard Matheson was quite simply one of the greatest genre writers of all time. Horror, mystery, suspense, western novels…television, film scripts…He was one for the ages.” -Christopher Golden

“If all we knew Richard Matheson for was his Twilight Zone episodes, he’d still be a writing legend. But he did so, so much more…It is impossible to overstate how important Richard Matheson is to postwar sci fi, fantasy & horror in prose, TV & film.” -Zack Stentz, screenwriter of Thor and X Men: First Class

“140 characters can’t begin cover what [Richard Matheson] has given the sci fi & horror genre.” –Edgar Wright, writer and director of Baby Driver

“Where Matheson shines is in his depictions of ordinary horror, the way strange goings-on affect everyday people, and his ambiguous endings leave plenty of room for further thought. . . . These chilling page-turners still hold up, serving as an excellent starting point for a new generation of readers.” Kirkus Reviews

“[Matheson’s] imagination and mastery of the short form cannot be denied, and this collection demonstrates the indelible influence he had on speculative literature” -Publishers Weekly
