    Some very interesting shorts.

    I loved the first story, the one that the Twilight Zone TV series and movie borrowed. After that, it is hit or miss on each story. The shorter stories really shine and really make this collection. Matheson's imagination goes all out with thing like- (I'll give an example from one of the shorter tales and one of my favorites) a group of teenage witches fighting modern day wars against tanks and armies, yet just acting as a teenager does by being arrogant and standoffish to the general who doesn't order them, but must simply ask them to vanquish the enemy. Clever tales!

    20,000 is great but it's all down hill from there.

    I was hoping for so much more than the book delivered.

    A mixed bag of Matheson’s shorts. There are better collections out there, but this is a worthwhile read for Matheson fans. Outside of ‘Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,’ which begins the book, the shorts are printed in order of publication, so there’s a bit of muddling through his older stories before getting to the better ones. My favorites were Long Distance Call, Noah, Crickets, and The Distributor. Worth checking out to see Matheson progress from his weaker early works to his remarkable later period.
