Review:

Some people will remember The Incredible Shrinking Man as a movie with great special effects and a surprisingly good script, given the ridiculous title. Matheson's classic novella is the reason for that. As Scott Carey -- husband, father, and all-around decent guy -- mysteriously shrinks, he faces unimagined horrors at every step, up to the story's surprising resolution. It's packaged here with a number of Matheson's other classic stories, including "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet," which became a popular Twilight Zone episode, and "Duel," which was turned into a movie by a very young Steven Spielberg.

From the Back Cover:

Richard Matheson, the New York Times Bestselling author of What Dreams May Come and I Am Legend, achieved early fame by penning this unforgettable novel, which became the basis for the Hugo Award-winning 1957 film, The Incredible Shrinking Man. His compelling vision of one ordinary man's gradual descent into a microscopic world remains one of the acknowledged classics of horror and science fiction.
