    Im righting this review about 6 months latter and I can't remember a single story in it. Guess that says a lot about it.

    "Not my cup of tea, but brilliantly read."

    While Matheson's work, specifically his shorter works, are not my personal favorite, they are stunningly written and very moving tales, and Scott Brick's reading is, as ever, flawless. I know this will be a must for Matheson devotees.
