Synopsis

<p>Available only in e-book format, <i>Backteria and Other Improbable Tales</i> is a brand new collection of short tales of terror and the unknown from master storyteller Richard Matheson. In the title story, published here for the first time, a researcher encounters an exotic new strain of virus that causes the infected person to disappear. Curiosity leads the doctor on a path of discovery which takes him deep into his own personal history and suggests the age-old warning: Be careful what you wish for.</p><p>In “Getting Together”, a case of mistaken identity leads to a darkly farcical story of marriage, murder, and a love that knows no bounds. The quietly threatening “Haircut” shows how a routine trim becomes a dark and terrifying experience when a barber is confronted with a sick customer who seems to him otherworldly.</p><p>In this collection of stories Matheson clearly demonstrates once again why Ray Bradbury called him “one of the most important writers of the twentieth century” and Stephen King named him as “the author who influenced me most as a writer.”</p>
