memories come flooding back--Somewhere in Time,
Duel, The Shrinking Man, I Am Legend, and countless
more. He's one of the greatest storytellers of our
time--or any time.
Now Gauntlet Press has assembled
He Is Legend: Celebrating Richard Matheson, a
spectacular anthology of original, never-before
published stories by today's best writers--stories
set in Richard Matheson's own fictional universes, and
published with Mr. Matheson's complete cooperation!
And, among the many contributions
to the book is the first collaboration ever between
Stephen King and his son Joe Hill, the novella
“Throttle” their take on Matheson’s classic “Duel.”
This is, obviously, a once-in-a-lifetime publishing
event as its father and sons first collaboration. Both
Stephen King and Joe Hill will be signing both the

introduction by Ramsey Campbell (additional contributors
will be announced at a later date).

Legend features the original full-length screenplay
