Mayhem Complete!

Mayhem Complete!

To be honest, I wasn’t thrilled with this the more I got into it. The book seemed to drag on and on, becoming far too wordy in parts. That said, the storyline was original and characters relatable so I did like it. Not love it, but like it.

Onto the next book …

33544   “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” by Richard Matheson.

Publisher’s Synopsis:

Remember that monster on the wing of the airplane? William Shatner saw it on The Twilight Zone, John Lithgow saw it in the movie-even Bart Simpson saw it. “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” is just one of many classic horror stories by Richard Matheson that have insinuated themselves into our collective imagination.

Here are more than twenty of Matheson’s most memorable tales of fear and paranoia, including:

“Duel,” the nail-biting tale of man versus machines that inspired Steven Spielberg’s first film;

“Prey,” in which a terrified woman is stalked by a malevolent Tiki doll, as chillingly captured in yet another legendary TV moment;

“Blood Son,” a disturbing portrait of a strange little boy who dreams of being a vampire;

“Dress of White Silk,” a seductively sinister tale of evil and innocence.

Personally selected by Richard Matheson, the bestselling author of I Am Legend and What Dreams May Come, these and many other stories, more than demonstrate why he is rightfully regarded as one of the finest and most influential horror writers of our generation.So excited to reread this! This book is an old favorite of mine. I never understood why some people can’t reread books that they loved. For me it’s like returning to an old friend.”

This is a collection of short horror stories, the title story being the basis of a Twilight Zone episode. I do love horror and short stories both, so this is a win win for me!
