Rodney Wilder, October 2, 2012 (view all comments by Rodney Wilder)
Far ahead of its time in style and content. Matheson's writing here is bizarro before bizarro, I'd hazard to say. These short stories feel like myriad little windows into one strangely unsettling world. Ranging from under-the-radar terror to speculative bordering on sci-fi, the stories here are (generally) a pleasant read for one who likes to read outside-the-box literature. Having been written so long ago, it is easy to now recognize shades of Matheson in pretty much any alternative author you can think of, from Jeremy Robert Johnson to Chuck Palahniuk.
