Read from May 15 to 16, 2012

I've read a collection of Matheson stories before, centered around "I Am Legend" and while I loved the title story, the rest were a bit too creepy for more, more along the lines of Stephen King.

However, I saw this book at the library and didn't immediately connect Matheson and "I Am Legend" to this collection. Despite that, I loved these stories; all of them excellent, and all of them are very twisty.

This edition of the book uses an image from the film Real Steel to promote the title story Steel, and while the movie and story are very different, there are plenty of parallels that I was surprised to see the film adaptation picked up on.

All in all, a very enjoyable collection of stories that are more sideways than they are straightforward.
