Summary
"This volume examines seven of Richard Matheson's (1926-2013) full-length novels, a sampling of short stories, and several film adaptations. The chapters, which are arranged in three thematic sections, emphasize Matheson's historical prominence, consider his precursors and successors, and situate him within narrative traditions of mythology, cinema, genre, and memory studies" --
