Publisher's Summary

In Matheson's vampire classic I Am Legend, a plague has decimated the world and transformed the unfortunate survivors into bloodthirsty 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?
This recording also includes a sampling of other horror stories by Richard Matheson, some comic, all scary: "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".

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, snort,,, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I Am Legend was pretty good, but the movie is better (I can count the # of times I've said the movie is better than the book on 1 hand). The remaining stories varied from silly to huh? to something to listen to if you need help falling to sleep. I have written stories much better, & this guy gets a movie made out of the only one that is readable by anyone with a semblance of intelligence?
Some of the stories reminded me vaguely of Lovecraft, on a very bad drunk. Left me wondering why I had purchased this book despite the reviews & wishing I had gotten the version with I Am Legend only.
The narrator seems good at reading a very limited range of voices, making books with more than 2 or 3 characters a poor choice for this particular narrator.
Do yourself a favor and buy the version without the sleep aids, unless that's just what you need.
