Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Matheson's first book (he is the son of the well-known fantasy writer Richard Matheson) contains 27 fantasy and horror stories, nine of which are original to the collection. The brevity of the tales is their chief virtue; the punchy narrative form displays the author's wit and an almost poetic compression. But Matheson's flawsa sloppiness and laziness evinced in a lack of credibility and a tendency to the clichemilitate against the needs of the genre. Among the stories that do work well are ``Timed Exposures,'' a tale of two strangers linking up at a party, with a genuinely disturbing denouement; ``Graduation,'' about a homicidal college student; ``Where There's a Will,'' in which a man wakes to find himself buried alive, with a true horror comic-book windup; and ``Goosebumps,'' a gruesome idea nicely realized. Harry O. Morris has created photo-montage illustrations, and Stephen King and Dennis Etchison have provided introductions. (August 25)
Library Journal
From the dangers of jogging (``Third Wind'') to the risks of the road (``Dead End''), this collection of 27 tales of the macabre, including 10 original publications, illustrates the author's talent for short, horrific fantasy. Recommended for large libraries. JC

    A superb collection of stories by the son of a legend!

    Nice to see this collection available ad an eBook. Read it back in the 80s and it made a huge impression on me. The stories in this collection are short and sharp, like a knife. They cut to the quick. RC can do in 6 pages what some writers struggle to achieve in 20. The story "Red" has stayed with me for nearly 25 years. Terrifying, heartbreaking, at times hilarious, this collection is not to be missed.

    Sample not a sample

    It would hqve been nice if the sample of this book actually included some writing by the actual author.
