Notes:
Among the greats of 20th century horror and fantasy, few names stand above Richard Matheson. Though known by many for novels like 'I Am Legend' and his sixteen 'Twilight Zone' episodes, Matheson truly shines in his chilling, masterful short stories. Matheson revolutionized horror by taking it out of Gothic castles and strange cosmos and into the darkened streets and suburbs we recognize as our own. He infuses tales of the fantastic and supernatural with dark explorations of human nature, delving deep into the universal dread of feeling alone and threatened in a dangerous world.

Reviews
Every single story in here satisfies. As a lover of the twighlight zone and horror anthologies, there were a number that were familiar as well as hidden gems I had missed. Matheson brings the uncanny and/or surprising to the most mundane situations.
