Author of countless famous novels and stories that have been often adapted either for the big screen (I Am Legend, Duel, etc.) or for TV episodes (e.g." Trilogy of Terror") as well as of great scripts for successful TV series (The Twilight Zone being only the more widely known), Richard Matheson stopped writing short fiction in 1971, but his stories are far from forgotten or outdated. From official release/information:
Product Description: What if you were told that you could make a fortune just by pushing a button on a box? But pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world . . . someone you don't know. Would you still push the button?
