This book is a collection of short stories. Most readers will be familiar with the 'I Am Legend' movie with Will Smith and 'The Omega Man' with Charleton Heston. The first story in the book is 'I Am Legend' which has the feel of both movies but the story is different. Another story was adapted to horror film 'Trilogy of Terror'. Most of the stories are about human survival and what it can cost the soul. If you want a quick read with out alot of detail, this is it. Richard Matheson's writing style is simple and to the point which may put some readers off or it could be the truth of circumstance.
