“I think the author who influenced me the most as a writer was Richard Matheson.” — Stephen King
This unique volume collects two remarkable conversations. Ray Bradbury, one of America’s most widely-read authors, speaks eloquently about his intense love of writing – and for the first time goes on the record about his adventures and misadventures in Hollywood. Richard Matheson was a major writer in science fiction, fantasy and horror, whose novel I Am Legend spawned the current zombie craze and whose classic Twilight Zone episodes have been seen by millions; this is the only personal, definitive account of his extraordinary career. These are verbatim, uncensored interviews with two literary giants, conducted by Dennis Etchison and transcribed without revisions, rewriting or polishing.
“Now that they are no longer able to speak to us directly about their lives and careers, it seems only right that they have the last word. Call it the writer’s cut.” — Dennis Etchison
