WHAT DREAMS MAY COME and GONE GIRL
Richard Matheson penned the novel on which the movie WHAT DREAMS MAY COME starring Robin Williams is based. It is an award winning audiobook deftly performed by Robertson Dean. Matheson died last year at age 87, and is also the author of I AM LEGEND, BID TIME RETURN (filmed as "Somewhere in Time,") A STIR OF ECHOES, HELL HOUSE, and THE SHRINKING MAN, among others. Other movies based on his work include THE BOX, REAL STEEL, LOOSE CANNONS, DUEL (Stephen Spielberg's first film), and the "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" episode of Twilight Zone. He was also a prolific short story writer. Finally, to hear the book on which the Ben Affleck movie GONE GIRL is based, listen to Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne's performance of the novel.
