Gauntlet Press has reported that Richard Matheson’s new autobiographical novel, Generations, is ahead of schedule. The printer is a month ahead of schedule so they’ll be getting the books by the end of the first week of September.
Description: Generations is an autobiographical novel by Richard Matheson which will be published exclusively by Gauntlet as a trade edition and a 26-copy limited edition. There will be no other editions created.
Generations takes place at a gathering of the Matheson family after the funeral of Matheson’s father. While this meeting didn’t actually took place Matheson uses the meeting to explore the many secrets and demons his family harbors. Matheson has never written an autobiography and his adolescence is something that has never been explored in articles or interviews. Matheson is sixteen when he tells the story. A month after Matheson submitted the novel to us he faxed us 8 additional pages. In the book he had talked about everyone except his father and in these eight pages he discusses the difficult relationship between the two of them.
Included in the book will be 10 handwritten pages from Matheson’s manuscript.
