An Excellent Collection
I've listened to numerous short story horror collections through
Audible and have to say that this is one of the finest. Unlike many other collections which tend to meander, wandering in and out of the horror genre, Mr Matheson's writing is pure terror; bold, original (even against contemporary authors) and, to quote Mr. King's introduction, 'unrelenting'. From the opening tale Matheson puts you on the edge of your seat and then never gives you a moments' rest! Well narrated, nice clear recording.

Great stories, well read
These stories are full of rage and horror. A story about a house that has absorbed a man's lifetime of anger; a story about a man who systematically provokes hatred and violence among neighbours for no apparent reason; a story about a writer so full of self-loathing and despair that he ceases to exist; a story about a tie salesman for whom other people are a perpetual hell of sound and slime. These stories are the essence of their author. Someone who understands human darkness very well.
They are, I believe, chronlogically ordered and so there is some variation in quality. Some readers are better than others but in general they are excellent. Conrad John Schuck may be an acquired taste...but I have come to like him best - especially reading "Wet Straw".
I think anyone who wants to understand modern horror writing should give this a chance and listen to every story carefully.
