Description

Among the greats of twentieth-century horror and fantasy, few names stand above Richard Matheson. Though known by many for novels like I Am Legend and his sixteen Twilight Zone episodes, Matheson truly shines in his chilling, masterful short stories. Since his first story appeared in 1950, virtually every major writer of science fiction and fantasy has fallen under his influence, including Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Peter Straub, and Joe Hill, as well as filmmakers like Stephen Spielberg and J. J. Abrams.Matheson revolutionized horror by taking it out of Gothic castles and strange cosmos and into the darkened streets and suburbs we recognize as our own. He infused tales of the fantastic and supernormal with dark explorations of human nature, delving deep into the universal dread of feeling alone and threatened in a dangerous world. The Best of Richard Matheson brings together his greatest hits as chosen by Victor LaValle, an expert on horror fiction and one of its brightest talents, marking the first major overview of Matheson's legendary career. - Born of Man and Woman- Prey- Witch War- Shipshape Home- Blood Son- Where There's a Will- Dying Room Only- Counterfeit Bills- Death Ship- Dance of the Dead- Man With a Club- Button, Button- Duel- Day of Reckoning- The Prisoner- Dress of White Silk- Haircut- Nightmare at 20,000 Feet- The Funeral- Third from the Sun- The Last Day- Long Distance Call- Deus ex Machina- One for the Books- Now Die in It- The Conqueror- The Holiday Man- No Such Thing as a Vampire- Big Surprise- A Visit to Santa Claus- Finger Prints- Mute- Shock Wave
