Richard Matheson, the New York Times Bestselling author of What Dreams May Come and I Am Legend, achieved early fame by penning this unforgettable novel, which became the basis for the Hugo Award-winning 1957 film, The Incredible Shrinking Man. His compelling vision of one ordinary man's gradual descent into a microscopic world remains one of the acknowledged classics of horror and science fiction.
Matheson's legendary 1956 sci-fi tale of Scott Carey, a family man who is slowly shrinking into obscurity and a terrifying new world inside his own house, is beautifully realized by Yuri Rasovsky's memorable reading. Enthusiastic and compelling, Rasovsky seems predisposed to the suspense master's style of writing. Capturing the brilliant mix of everyday life and extraordinary horrors that Matheson is so revered for creating, Rasovsky reads with a dry, cool wit that breathes new life into this classic tale. He knows exactly how to relay the tension and anxiety to his audience, and never ceases to raise the stakes and bring the audience to their knees in sheer terror. This is a thrilling and unforgettable experience. A Tor paperback. (May)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
