I've only read 2 Mattheson books before Hell House (not great) and I am Legend (a masterpiece) but I'm also aware that Mattheson has written many short works for TV (Twilight Zone) so I was unsure of how good this would be. I have to say that he really is somewhat of dark little imp, the stories inside are wry looks at human nature and very well written. The original version of Button Button actually has a far better ending than the Twilight Zone version. Anyway, great collection of short stories, highly recomended.

No spoilers but lets start with the opening story (Button Button). All that hype on the front of the book about this "masterpiece". I honestly would expect something as good as this if not better from something produced from a creative writing class. I knew where it was heading from early on and the twist is a bit of a cheat too. I must admit I am only midway through the book but each tale has been nothing better than mediocre. Its a tiny book too, with the print reduced on the page to try to fatten the book up a bit. I am half way through after two hours reading, so expect to finish it tonight but I'm not expecting it to improve. The tales are old fashioned and though they may have been considered ground breaking in the fifties or sixties, they just don't cut it for the modern reader.

Bought this having watched the film 'The Box' and being a fan of horror and supernatural tales. I found it to be full of great thought provoking stories of moral dilemma and strange happenings. It is an easy read, clearly written and being short stories it was great to pick up and put down as time allowed. Loved it!

The late Richard Matheson was one of my favourite authors and so this review may be biased, however, he was a master of the short story and novel and this book is a fine showcase of his work. The recently filmed The Box is the lead story.

If you enjoy good stories well told you will enjoy this book
