A STIR OF ECHOES. Philadelphia and New York: J. B. Lippincott Company, . Octavo, boards. First edition. "One of the more provocative treatments of the theme of psychic gifts that prove a curse, and a forerunner of such novels as King's THE DEAD ZONE and Silverberg's DYING INSIDE. The first of Matheson's stories to explicity reveal his interest in the paranormal (a recurring theme in much of his later fiction), A STIR OF ECHOES is also memorable for its candid depiction of the tawdry side of suburban America." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-259. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 4-220. King list, p. 390. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with spine title lettering faded. (#83169).
