    An almost-lost treasure!

    Television and film fans recognize the fantastic works of imagination written by Richard Matheson through the many productions of his telescripts for the original Twilight Zone television series, television movies such as Duel, directed by unknown upstart Steven Spielberg, and feature films including What Dreams May Come, starring Robin Williams. In 2005, his short story titled ¿Dance of the Dead¿ was scripted for the celebrated HBO series Masters of Horror by his talented son, Richard Christian Matheson. Not all of Mr. Matheson¿s treatments for television have made it to the screen, however, and THE LINK is an epic unproduced screen treatment for a proposed 20-hour ABC television miniseries back in the 1970s. When ABC executives requested that the series be shortened to a 7-hour running time, Mr. Matheson found it impossible to cut the story without eviscerating the plot and characterizations. Let us fall upon our knees in thankfulness that Barry Hoffman of Gauntlet Press has published the outline of this enormously entertaining miniseries so that we may read what was intended, but never finalized and filmed. (And we have to suffer through months of American Idol and the like? I don't get it.) This is the intricate and very involving story of a writer named Robert Allright who is himself scripting a television miniseries about modern psychic phenomena. Cool, huh? Robert is a skeptic, but when his archeologist father uncovers a strange crystal in the Arizona desert, bizarre but undeniable links to our human past (and present and future!) begin to emerge. When Robert and paranormal investigator Cathy Graves explore the mysteries his father has only begun to investigate, Robert finds his own latent psychic powers coming to the fore, and cosmic revelations about life on earth propel the story to a stunning conclusion that will leave the reader breathless. Mankind¿s most fundamental questions about life and death are about to be revealed! This is a tour de force in which Mr. Matheson illustrates the various paranormal incidents that have perplexed and amazed us throughout history, building the foundations of his miniseries upon the principals that have governed his life. As fascinating and utterly satisfying as anything I can imagine being produced on television.
