Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Perhaps no author living is as responsible for chilling a generation with tantalizing nightmare visions . . . ."-The New York Times "One of those who have moved imaginative fiction from the sidelines into the literary mainstream. May he be writing far into the twenty-first century."-Ray Bradbury "Matheson is the master of paranoia-pitting a single man against unknown horrors and examining his every slow twist in the wind."-San Jose Mercury News.

Synopsis: Remember that monster on the wing of the airplane? William Shatner saw it on The Twilight Zone, John Lithgow saw it in the movie-even Bart Simpson saw it. "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" is just one of many classic horror stories by Richard Matheson that have insinuated themselves into our collective imagination.
Here are more than twenty of Matheson's most memorable tales of fear and paranoia, including:
"Duel," the nail-biting tale of man versus machines that inspired Steven Spielberg's first film;
"Prey," in which a terrified woman is stalked by a malevolent Tiki doll, as chillingly captured in yet another legendary TV moment;
"Blood Son," a disturbing portrait of a strange little boy who dreams of being a vampire;
"Dress of White Silk," a seductively sinister tale of evil and innocence.
Personally selected by Richard Matheson, the bestselling author of I Am Legend and What Dreams May Come, these and many other stories, more than demonstrate why he is rightfully regarded as one of the finest and most influential horror writers of our generation.
Review: This classic horror collection showcases the early career of one of the field's most influential and innovative writers. Much of Richard Matheson's work has found its way into pop culture: the title story became a memorable episode of television's The Twilight Zone, and horror aficionados reading "Prey" will immediately visualize Trilogy of Terror's Karen Black hunkered down with a butcher knife. But this collection's power lies in its wide-ranging exploration of style and subject and the literary skill that Matheson demonstrated right from the start of his career. Many of his stories were decidedly unconventional when published (most in the 1950s and early 1960s), and still have the power to shock or to satisfy with their graceful inevitability. Matheson is not primarily a monster writer: rather, he examines how we create monsters from our own fears and frailties, and sometimes become the monsters ourselves. Nightmare at 20,000 Feet is a must-have collection for Matheson fans and readers who like their horror spare, precise, and chilling. --Roz Genessee
