Product Description

Set for Publication 2017

Gauntlet is excited to announce our most ambitious Richard Matheson project to date, a 2-book set: BEARDLESS WARRIORS and BROTHERS IN ARMS: STORIES INSPIRED BY RICHARD MATHESON’S BEARDLESS WARRIORS, edited by Barry Hoffman and R.C. Matheson.

Richard Matheson expressed to Gauntlet publisher Barry Hoffman his desire to see his searing wartime novel BEARDLESS WARRIORS published as a signed limited edition. We had to keep pushing back the book’s release due to Matheson constantly finding (and writing) new and previously unpublished material.

Three years after his death we will be publishing BEARDLESS WARRIORS and BROTHERS IN ARMS as part of a two-book set (both books, by contract, have to be sold together).

One book will contain Matheson’s novel. The second is an anthology of stories inspired by the novel BEARDLESS WARRIORS.

Cover art for the anthology is from Clive Barker. The cover for the Matheson novel is from his favorite artist Harry O. Morris.

Two highlights of the anthology include previously unpublished stories by Ray Bradbury and Matheson himself: Bradbury’s “Final Day” was found by his bibliographer (and frequent editor of Gauntlet Bradbury titles) Donn Albright, a beautifully written story with an ominous ending. Matheson’s “The Lecture” was unearthed by his son R.C. Matheson, written when a young Matheson was at boot camp.

For those desiring to keep the two books together we will have a single slipcase to house both books.

All contributors (with the exception of Bradbury and Barker) will sign tipsheets for the 125 copy deluxe numbered edition. We have tipsheets signed by Matheson for this deluxe edition.

The lettered edition will be signed by ALL contributors including Matheson, Bradbury and Barker.

  • 125-copy signed deluxe numbered edition  (2 book set)
  • Optional handmade bonded leather slipcase (holds both books)
