Tor has been republishing Richard Matheson for a number of years, bringing back into print such classics as Hell House, I Am Legend and The Incredible Shrinking Man. This month the company has collected 20 of his best short horror stories under the title Nightmare at 20,000 Feet.

The book boasts a glowing introduction by Stephen King, who states, "When people talk about the genre, I guess they mention my name first, but without Richard Matheson, I wouldn't be around. He is as much my father as Bessie Smith was Elvis Presley's mother."
