Description

Now a major motion starring Hugh Jackman, here is a new short story collection by the New York Times bestselling author of I Am Legend.


Imagine a future in which human boxing has been replaced by heavyweight bouts between massive robots. Richard Matheson's classic short story, "Steel," is the inspiration for Real Steel, a new movie starring Hugh Jackman.


But Matheson's story, which was previously filmed as an episode of the original Twilight Zone television series, is just one of over a dozen unforgettable tales in this outstanding collection, which includes two new stories never before collected in a book. Also featured is a satirical fantasy, "The Splendid Source," which was recently turned into an episode of Family Guy.
