What Dreams May Come
NY, Putnam's, (1978). A novel of the afterlife, which the author called "the most important (read effective) book I've written," because of the way it engaged philosophical, religious and spiritual issues. It represented a move away from the horror genre, with which he was closely associated, to a novel that was more metaphysical and supernatural than his earlier works. Inscribed by Matheson, "with many thanks." Owner's bookplate on front flyleaf; fine in a near fine dust jacket with a modicum of rubbing to the edges and the folds. Laid in is a contemporary newspaper clipping of a Harlan Ellison review of the book. [#030757] ON HOLD
