Publisher's Summary

Southwest Arizona, a century ago: an uneasy truce exists between the remote frontier community of Picture City and the neighboring Apaches. That delicate peace is shredded when the bodies of two white men are found hideously mutilated. The angry townspeople are certain the “savages” have broken the treaty, but Billjohn Finley, the local Indian agent, fears that darker, more unholy forces may be at work. There’s a tall, dark stranger in town, who rode in wearing the dead men’s clothes. A stranger who may not be entirely human.
Originally published as a mass-market Western in 1994, Shadow on the Sun has been largely overlooked by horror fans and general readers. But this tale of supernatural terror is sure to chill the blood of Matheson’s many fans.


What the Critics Say

“Perhaps no other author living is as responsible for chilling a generation with tantalizing nightmare visions.” (New York Times)

Not What I Was Expecting

I'm a fan of a lot of Richard Matheson's stories...this is not one of them. Overall I thought it was okay. The narrator did a good job, and his voice suited the story. It was a different sort of story compared to Matheson's other works. This one is set in the Wild West and our hero of the story is a government official, who must figure out who is killing people in the town. It is a supernatural story, so if that isn't your thing then don't get this book!
