Richard Matheson - Io sono leggenda
È il 1976. Robert Neville torna a casa dopo una giornata di duro lavoro. Cucina, pulisce, ascolta un disco, si siede in poltrona e legge un libro. Eppure la sua non è una vita normale. Soprattutto dopo il tramonto. Perché Neville è l'ultimo uomo sulla Terra. L'ultimo umano sopravvissuto, in un mondo completamente popolato da vampiri. Nella solitudine che lo circonda, Robert esegue la sua missione, studia il fenomeno e le superstizioni che lo circondano, cerca nuove strade per lo sterminio delle creature delle tenebre. Durante la notte Neville se ne sta rintanato nella sua roccaforte, assediato dai morti viventi avidi del suo sangue. Ma con il sorgere del sole è lui a dominare un gioco crudele e di meccanica ferocia, scandito dalle luci e dalle ombre di un tempo sempre uguale a se stesso e che impone la ripetizione di un rituale sanguinario. In questo mondo Neville, con la sua unicità, si è già trasformato in leggenda.

Richard Matheson - La ​casa infernal
Nuestro ​librero Pablo Álvarez (Librería de Barcelona Rambla) recomienda La casa infernal: "Un equipo de investigación pasará una semana en la Mansión Belasco, la casa más embrujada del mundo, para intentar probar la vida más allá de la muerte. Novela atmosférica y de ritmo trepidante, una obra maestra". Minotauro recupera para su colección de clásicos una de las mejores novelas sobre casas encantadas del maestro del terror Richard Matheson. En 1940 una expedición de cinco personas se internó en la infame Casa Belasco para desentrañar los misterios de la que era considerada como la casa más peligrosa del mundo. Sólo uno de ellos consiguió salir con vida. Treinta años después, el millonario Rolf Randolph Deutsch contrata a cuatro extraños, entre ellos el único superviviente de la masacre de 1940, para demostrar la existencia de la vida después de la muerte. Para ello deberán pasar una semana en la Casa Belasco. La Casa Infernal les ha permitido entrar, pero ¿los dejará salir? «De todas las novelas sobre casas encantadas, La Casa Infernal es la más aterradora que se ha escrito jamás. Destaca sobre las demás, como las montañas despuntan sobre las colinas.» Stephen King
