Gauntlet Press has reported that Richard Christian Matheson’s Created By is just about a month or so away from shipping. If you haven’t read his first (and so far only) novel, you’re in for a treat. It’s one of the most innovative horror novels ever written from this talented screenplay and short story writer. From the dustjacket: Created By explores the darkest recesses of human nature, where the meridian between reality and make believe is as deceptive as a television screen, and the single difference between the two is that on the other side terror doesn’t break for commercials.
Contributing appreciations to the book are Richard Matheson, noted producer and novelist Stephen J. Cannell and David Schow. All three signed just the lettered edition. R.C. Matheson received accolades last year for his teleplay of Stephen King’s “Battleground”, which was shown last summer on TNT’s “Nightmares and Dreamscapes.” It was first shown without commercial interruption and contains no dialogue.
