Here is the vivid and terrifying novel that inspired the classic motion picture of the late 1950s. The Incredible Shrinking Man is, as Dean Koontz has written, "a classic of suspense as poignant as it is frightening—a mix that only Richard Matheson could pull off."
Formerly a simple and rather bland husband and father, Scott Carey now finds himself shrinking with no end in sight. Inch by inch, day by day, Scott is getting smaller. His wife and family turn into unreachable giants, the family cat becomes a predatory menace, and Scott must struggle to survive in a world that seems to be growing ever larger and more perilous—until he faces the ultimate limits of fear and existence.
This volume includes not only Matheson's complete novel but also nine additional SF/horror short stories—one of which, "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet," was the basis for a classic episode of TV's The Twilight Zone.
