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 Paul Michael Garcia, Malcolm Hillgartner, Arte Johnson,Jay Karnes, Ray Porter, Lawrence Pressman, Yuri Rasovsky, Lorna Raver, Ned Schmidtke,Conrad John Schuck, and Christine Williams.

    " Pretty much since the day Stephen King said this was his greatest influence, someone has been publishing Richard Matheson endlessly. He's got some very good stories though. Some of them are slow and unfulfilling, but for the most part, this is a great collection of good scares. "

    " There is something as cold as liquid nitrogen at the core of Richard Matheson's stories. I remember watching Duel on the ABC Movie of the Week in 1971 and being completely blown away by it. His endings are like when you think you're at the bottom of the steps and step out and....drop. "

    " Fun book filled with REALLY short stories. Matheson wrote some of the original Twilight Zone television series episodes and this book reads like a black and white flip book of the show. "Horror stories" is a stretch though, especially if you're looking for modern chainsaw massacres and/or Stephen King-like absurdity! ; ) Given the time period these were written there's a very certain cuteness and innocence about them, but thought-provoking all the same in a 'watching Twilight Zone at midnight as a kid' sort of way! Good stuff! "
