    Description

    One of the finest and most influential horror writers of the 20th century, Richard Matheson (I Am Legend, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Somewhere in Time) has left his stamp on the collective imagination. Here are more than 20 of Matheson's most memorable tales of fear and paranoia, personally selected by the author. Many of these stories have already entered into popular culture, including the title story, which became a landmark episode of The Twilight Zone, and "Duel", the nail-biting tale of man versus machine that inspired Steven Spielberg's first film.

    Other stories include "First Anniversary", "Dress of White Silk", "Witch War", "Dance of the Dead", "Mad House", "Prey", "Blood Son", "Crickets", "Wet Straw", "The Children of Noah", "Through Channels", "Old Haunts", "Disappearing Act", "The Holiday Man", "Legion of Plotters", "The Distributor", "Long Distance Call", "Slaughter House", and "The Likeness of Julie".

    Find out why Stephen King (who wrote the introduction) has called Matheson one of his favorite writers.

    Narrated by Richard Powers, Malcolm Hillgartner, Arte Johnson, Jay Karnes, Ray Porter, Lawrence Pressman, Yuri Rasovsky, Lorna Raver, Ned Schmidtke, Conrad John Schuck, and Christine Williams.

    Commentaires

    "The well-known title tale about a nervous air traveler is a showcase for the author's trademark less-is-more prose style, which suspensefully delineates a psychological tug-of-war between man and a monster that may be purely imagined. Timeless in their simplicity, [Matheson's] stories are also relentless in their approach to basic fears." (Publishers Weekly)

    Waste of a credit

    I started and quit on this 2 part book several times, before I finally suffered through to the merciful end.There are plenty of better syfy authors to choose from. DON'T waste your credit!

    If you like feeling uncomfortable, this is the book for you.

    Richard Matheson was an author that knew what it meant to be human, that to feel life you must also be touched by fear and paranoia. These stories will get under you skin and come home with you. If you enjoy the original “Twilight Zone,” you’ll feel right at home. The performances where all well done. Overall, I came out of this anthology craving more Matheson stories.

    Great collection - false advertising

    Great stories. I was happy to get turned on to Richard Matheson and wish I would have discovered him sooner. My only complaint is that the advertising text on Audible makes it appear as if "Duel" is part of this collection, and it's not. "Duel" was a major reason I bought the book and to not have it a part of the collection was very disappointing. That said, the book is still worth the money.

    An Excellent Collection

    I've listened to numerous short story horror collections through
    Audible and have to say that this is one of the finest. Unlike many other collections which tend to meander, wandering in and out of the horror genre, Mr Matheson's writing is pure terror; bold, original (even against contemporary authors) and, to quote Mr. King's introduction, 'unrelenting'. From the opening tale Matheson puts you on the edge of your seat and then never gives you a moments' rest! Well narrated, nice clear recording.

    dark fantasy, but some of the stories are recycled

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would rerecord any narrations by Yuri Rasovsky. Many of the stories were recycled from the short stories in the I Am Leged collection.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The stories were so dark, I have listened to many Richard Matheson Stories, but these are easily the darkest and angriest

    What three words best describe the narrators???s voice?

    spitty slobbery gross

    Was Nightmare at 20,000 Feet worth the listening time?

    not really

    Any additional comments?

    I love Richard Matheson's writing, but this compilation just seemed lazy.

    Yuri Butchers Matheson

    I couldn't listen to Yuri speak anymore. He absolutely ruined "The White Dress" for me. I've read everything Matheson has ever written, and this made me ill. The others were just fine though.

    Stephen King's Idol

    I can see how King was influenced to write his greatest works. Matheson is the true OG of Horror and I love it! A lot of his stories left you where you stood. I'd be in such shock and awe, that I would have to replay certain parts of the stories to make sure I understood what just happen! I didn't want it to end! But I also had to take breaks because sometimes it was a little much. Just enough to get my grip back on reality. Awesome read(s)!

    Oldies but goodies

    I knew most of these stories (or versions of) but still found them enjoyable. I would definatley recommend it to the younger generaton who may not know the old sstories and like fiction. Despite the age, the stories are well written and still relatable.

    Classic

    This is a great collection of classic tales by a great old-school horror author.

    Most of the 1 star reviews are from people who don't realize how old his works are, have never heard of him, and/or don't even comprehend that all of the stories are by the same person.

    Toller Silver Age Grusel.

    Richtig gute Collection. Unglaublich abwechslungsreiche Sammlung. Unglaublich das so unterschiedliche Stories von ein und dem selben Author stammen. Die brillanten Sprecher tun ihr Übriges dazu.

    Kompromissloser Mix aus Horror und Fiction. Wirklich gut.
