    One thought on “Shock Waves”

    1. I'm sure everyone reading this is familiar with the work of Richard Matheson. A great many of his short stories and a few of his novels have been adapted for film and television.The Incredible Shrinking Man, The Omega Man (and its remake I Am Legend), Duel, and some of the best episodes of TV's The Twilight Zone.Shock Waves is the fourth in a series of 4 collections published by Berkley Books in 1979.

"The Conqueror," a western story about a city boy that challenges the fastest shot in town, is another taut tale. Of historical interest is "Come Fygures, Come Shadows," a 46-page fragment of a nove [...]
