[MP3CD audiobook format in vinyl case.]

I Am Legend is read by Robertson Dean.

*The other stories included in this edition are read by Yuri Rasovsky.

In Matheson's vampire classic I Am Legend, a plague has decimated the world, and transformed the unfortunate survivors into blood-thirsty creatures of the night. Robert Neville is the last living man on earth. Every other man, woman, and child has become a vampire, hungry for Neville's blood. By day, he is the hunter, stalking the sleeping undead through the abandoned ruins of civilization. By night, he barricades himself in his home and prays for the dawn. How long can one man survive in a world of vampires? [I AM LEGEND, first published in 1954, was Richard Matheson's first SF novel, and established his reputation as a pre-eminent figure in SF.]

*This recording also includes a sampling of other horror stories by Richard Matheson -- some comic -- all scary.
Included are: *Buried Talents, *The Near Departed, *Prey, *Witch War, *Dance of the Dead, *Dress of White Silk, *Mad House, *The Funeral, *From Shadowed Places, and *Person to Person.

Review:

''The most clever and riveting vampire novel since Dracula.'' --Dean Koontz

''I think the author who influenced me the most as a writer was Richard Matheson.'' --Stephen King

''One of the ten all-time best novels of vampirism.'' --Fangoria

''[A] sink-your-teeth-in vampire masterpiece . . . It will change the way you look at yourself and the amalgam of the world around you right now . . . If ever a book was made to read in one sitting, this complex horror novel is it.'' --SFsite.com

''One of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to . . . The novel alone is worth killing for. If you're a fan of Matheson, the included short story collection is a bonus . . . the perfect storm of psychology, science fiction, and noir.'' --SFFAudio.com

''In a tale that plays with the slippery slope of sanity, Dean makes the perfect choice for a narrator. His powerful performance proves chilling and haunting.'' --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

''The incomparable talents of Robertson Dean shine as he becomes Neville, and the listener can only follow his lead ever deeper into this nightmare world . . . This is one of those magical audiobooks that you simply have to enjoy in one session.'' --AudioFile
