A Stir of Echoes

A Stir of Echoes

by Richard Matheson

CD-Audio Publication Date: 11/02/2009

 
Tom Wallace lived an ordinary life, until a chance event awakened psychic abilities he never knew he possessed. Now, he's hearing the private thoughts of the people around him--and learning shocking secrets he never wanted to know. But as Tom's existence becomes a waking nightmare, even greater jolts are in store, as he becomes the unwilling recipient of a compelling message from beyond the grave. This eerie ghost story, by the award-winning author of Hell House and I Am Legend, inspired the acclaimed 1999 film starring Kevin Bacon. Though originally published in the 1950s, its themes and ideas remain as fresh as if it were written today.
