Summary

An early pulse-pounding thriller from the Twilight Zone scribe and multi-award-winning author of I Am Legend.   Vincent was a brilliant pianist, but a disturbed personality. The asylum he was committed to could not hold him. He escaped on an early Sunday morning, bent on revenge against those who betrayed him—his manager and the man who married his lover, Ruth.   With his temper spiraling out of control, Vincent pursued his prey without mercy, brutally slaughtering anyone who got in his way. For four hours he would terrorize a community. His rage would not be sated no matter how much blood he spilled. And he refused to let anyone keep him from Ruth ever again . . .   Richard Matheson, “one of the great names in American terror fiction,” unleashes a relentless novel of chilling suspense in Fury on Sunday (The Philadelphia Inquirer).   “The author who influenced me the most as a writer was Richard Matheson.” —Stephen King   “Perhaps no other living author is as responsible for chilling a generation with tantalizing nightmare visions.” —The New York Times   “Matheson’s a writer who just has the special knack, the deft skill to imagine terrifying scenarios on any scale, large and small, and give them chilling possibility.” —Los Angeles Times

    From the iconic author of I Am Legend: The fascinating, unfinished teleplay of a saga encompassing the Titanic, Jack the Ripper, and the paranormal.   Richard Matheson, the celebrated Twilight Zone scripter, explored his interests in metaphysics, spiritualism, and parapsychology in such stories as Hell House, Somewhere in Time, and What Dreams May Come. In the early 1980s, he approached the ABC television network with a twenty-hour mini-series about such phenomena in contemporary times—and included two in-depth historical accounts of the psychic events related to the Jack the Ripper murders and in the Titanic disaster.   Titled The Link, Matheson turned in a 557-page outline that ABC executives requested he condense into seven hour-long episodes. Unable to realize his original vision under such restrictions, Matheson abandoned the television project and attempted to novelize the outline. After writing 800 pages that only comprised the first part of the novel, he decided it was too unwieldy and moved on to other stories.   Now, Matheson’s fans can discover what might have been with this publication of The Link, which includes the entire original outline as well as part of the teleplay. The story follows Robert Allright, a writer working with paranormal investigator Cathy Graves to decipher a mystery unearthed by his father in an Arizona archeological dig. Allright’s only clue is the mystifying crystal that his father believes is the key to a great discovery.   “The author who influenced me the most as a writer was Richard Matheson.” —Stephen King   “Matheson peppers [The Link] with innumerable historical incidents of supposed paranormal activity that make fascinating reading.” —Publishers Weekly

    The Demon Lover was first published in 1927, the same year as H.P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu. Dion Fortune was among a generation of occult horror writers that formed popular culture's obsession with secret societies, vampires, demons, ritual magic, and dark powers lurking in the shadows. What sets Fortune apart from so many of her contemporaries is her deep knowledge of the inner workings of magical orders, rites, and practices, and her own freethinking on occult subjects, demonstrated in the classic Psychic Self-Defense and The Mystical Qabalah.
