About the Author:
[Read by Scott Brick]
This eerie ghost story, by the award-winning author of Hell House and I Am Legend, inspired the acclaimed 1999 film starring Kevin Bacon.
Tom Wallace lived an ordinary life, until a chance event awakened psychic abilities he never knew he possessed. Now, he's hearing the private thoughts of the people around him - and learning shocking secrets he never wanted to know. But as Tom's existence becomes a waking nightmare, even greater jolts are in store, as he becomes the unwilling recipient of a compelling message from beyond the grave!
RICHARD MATHESON, legendary writer of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, is the New York Times bestselling author of I Am Legend, Hell House, Somewhere in Time, A Stir of Echoes, What Dreams May Come, and more. He has contributed classics in many media, including novels ( The Incredible Shrinking Man), television ( The Twilight Zone), and film ( Somewhere in Time). A Grand Master of Horror and past winner of the Bram Stoker Award for Lifetime Achievement, he has won many prestigious awards over his long career and has been called one of the most important writers of the twentieth century by Ray Bradbury. He was recently inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.
Scott Brick's taut, urgent voice masterfully renders Matheson's psychic thriller. When the skeptical Tom Wallace is hypnotized at a dinner party, he gains an uncanny power to see future events and becomes haunted by a dead woman. As his condition prophesizes more and more troubling events, his marriage and sanity start to unravel--which Brick mirrors in an increasingly desperate narration. Brick's fevered whisper ratchets up the pressure until the stunning climax--in which it sounds as if Tom is truly possessed. Still startlingly fresh 50 years after its publication, A STIR OF ECHOES makes listeners believe that there's much darkness in the world, even in the sunniest of Los Angeles suburbs. This audio production is far more eerie than the film. F.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
