Editorial Reviews

“Stands as a testament to Matheson’s literary longevity.” Publishers Weekly
“‘Steel’ is the excellent lead-off in this collection of more than a dozen Matheson gems, all brought to life with terrific drama, heart, and edge by Scott Brick. Holding their own amid his fantastic plots, Matheson’s main characters always have specific, memorable personalities. Brick makes the most of those detailed characterizations.” AudioFile
