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".

    "I am legend was an interesting listen, the rest no"

    the additional short stories seemingly of the same genre were no where's near the quality and seemed diluted, and difficult to finish

    Story
    "Ruined by narration"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who like bad narration.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Richard Matheson? Why or why not?

    Yes


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robertson Dean and Yuri Rasovsky ’s performances?

    No, the narration of the stories after I am Legend was so bad I stopped listening.
