NIGHTMARE AT 20,000 FEET by Richard Matheson (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
With the success of the movie blockbuster I Am Legend, Richard Matheson is being discovered by a new generation of horror fans. Here is the classic tale that was a landmark episode of The Twilight Zone.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded at Blackstone Audio by various award-winning narrators. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“Timeless in their simplicity, [Matheson’s] stories are also relentless in their approach to basic fears.”—Publishers Weekly
