Richard Matheson was born on February 20, 1926 in Allendale, New Jersey. He was eight when his stories appeared in a local newspaper, the Brooklyn Eagle. He served during World War II. He received a degree in journalism from the University of Missouri in 1949. In 1950 he first was noticed as an mostrar mais upcoming writer-to-watch, starting with the short story Born of Man and Woman. He wrote numerous novels and short stories during his lifetime including I am Legend, The Shrinking Man, What Dreams May Come, and Hell House. He won the World Fantasy Convention's Life Achievement Award, the Bram Stoker Award for Life Achievement, the Hugo Award, the Golden Spur Award, and the Writer's Guild Award. He also was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2010. When Hollywood approached him for the rights to his novel The Shrinking Man, he negotiated the chance to write the screenplay. This began a long career in screenwriting and adapting. He wrote the screenplay for Steven Spielberg's Duel and 16 episodes of the television series The Twilight Zone. He won an Edgar Allan Poe Award in 1973 for The Night Stalker. He died on June 23, 2013 at the age of 87. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

What's your Opinion of Richard Matheson? em Thing(amabrarian)s That Go Bump in the Night (Janeiro 2011)

This is probably my weirdest "comfort" book. None of the three movies made from this story are as good as the book. The insight into Robert's mind is the most important part of the story. I first read this book in college in a class called "Evil Lurks Among Us," and I fell in love with it. I have since read it many times and listened to the audiobook. Despite the fact that it is a rather scary story, I find the story to be very comfortable. I think Robert feels like a familiar person to me, and I enjoy my time with him. My favorite part of the story is the last few lines which include the title and I feel that the movies all miss the point being made in the last bit of the story. Robert has become the monster in this world. He is now the equivalent of the myth of the vampire that we have in our world.… (mais)

If you have ever wondered why scifi authors don't write love stories - this book is the answer.
The protagonist sees an historical exhibition at the Coronado Hotel in San Diego and falls in love with the the actress pictured at the exhibit. As you do. He then "wills" himself to travel back in time to 1896, and meets the person of his dreams. They fall in love with each other. We know this because they repeatedly say that they love each other. There is no development of a relationship. They just keep saying how much they love each other. Within 48 hours they're in bed together. Just like all the other virgins in 1896 would do!
It's so bad that it almost succeeds as a parody.

Depressive nihilism, that's all I got from this, also I hate how such supernatural cool thing has to be explained with "Science"

I hate this book with passion, such a defeatist book

The title story of this collection was the inspiration for the movie Real Steel in 2011. Most of the stories are from the 1950s, and I had read them before. There are a couple of newer stories in the collection.
