    One thought on “Shock III: 13 Electrifying Tales”

    1. This is a really good collection of stories, although some are repeated in other collections of Matheson's. I really enjoy his style - there's something about it that just grabs me, and even the mundane things interest me. I didn't love all of the stories in this collection, but out of the lot there was only one I didn't bother to finish. I just wasn't feeling it. But when it works, it works, and this mostly did, so I can't complain. Even the story written in *shudder* verse, The Jazz Machine, w [...]

    2. Поредната порция шокчета от Матисън, написани с неподържаемия му стил. Бързи, остри и с изненадващи извивки. Част от разказите бях чел в друг сборник, но не ми попречи пак да им се насладя.Girl of My Dreams – Криминална история с паранормални елементи. Един пълен задник изпозва спос [...]

    3. A story by story review:Girl of My DreamsAn extortionist uses his girlfriend’s precognition to extort money from the loved ones of people who are going to die. For the right sum, the man will provide the time and location of the accident so it can be avoided. But the man is getting tired of the weepy girl and is going to make a break from her after one last job.Typical Matheson prose – tight and taut. Does anybody know better than Matheson how to pace a story and develop a character with few [...]

    4. Shock II: 13 Electrifying Tales by Richard Matheson.A collection of the early short stories of a great horror/science fiction writer.To be honest, I didn't really enjoy this book, although there were a few notable exceptions. Girl of My Dreams tells the story of a woman who can see the future, and how/when you are going to die. Unfortunately her "other half" uses this gift for extortion. He gets what he deserves.Slaughter House is a classic horror story about two brothers who buy a haunted house [...]

    5. Unlike Shock I, I couldn't wait for Shock III to finish. I still loved reading a Richard Matheson piece, but it felt forced, as though the stories weren't coming as smoothly as the first book. I wasn't shocked either, somehow I lost the connection with these stories and it left me feeling bad. I love my short stories. I'm going to read more of Richard Matheson's work, this is nothing but a minor setback.

    6. Previous to picking this up I had read "I Am Legend" and found it competent if tepid; this collection, however, threw my imagination into high gear and walked me through some awesome sights. Matheson knows how to craft a complete story around a neat idea and deliver it all with good characters, good prose, and mood that transports the senses. There were great and I'm going to find more.
