Description
The legendary novel of science-fiction horror: "The author who influenced me the most as a writer was Richard Matheson" (Stephen King).

After he is exposed to a radioactive cloud, Scott Carey finds himself shrinking, slowly, day-by-day, inch-by-inch. Scott once had a normal, everyday existence as a husband and father, but as time passes, he becomes a national spectacle, something worthy of newspaper headlines. As Carey shrinks, smaller and smaller, his family become giants, more and more unreachable, and even the family cat becomes a predatory menace. In this world of disproportion, increasingly perilous with each passing day, Scott struggles to survive—and is pushed to the very limits of fear and existence . . .

Adapted into the Hugo Award–winning film The Incredible Shrinking Man, this is a classic by the author of I Am Legend and other renowned works—a master of imagination whom Ray Bradbury called "one of the most important writers of the twentieth century."

"A classic of suspense as poignant as it is frightening—a mix that only Richard Matheson could pull off." —Dean Koontz
