    Charles Beaumont
    Charles Beaumont was born Charles Leroy Nutt in Chicago in 1929 He dropped out of high school in the tenth grade and worked at a number of jobs before selling his first story to Amazing Stories in 1950 His story Black Country 1954 was the first work of short fiction to appear in Playboy, and his classic tale The Crooked Man appeared in the same magazine the following year Beaumont published numerous other short stories in the 1950s, both in mainstream periodicals like Playboy and Esquire and in science fiction and fantasy magazines.His first story collection, The Hunger and Other Stories, was published in 1957 to immediate acclaim, and was followed by two further collections, Yonder 1958 and Night Ride and Other Journeys 1960 He also published two novels, Run from the Hunter 1957, pseudonymously, with John E Tomerlin , and The Intruder 1959.Beaumont is perhaps best remembered for his work in television, particularly his screenplays for The Twilight Zone, for which he wrote several of the most famous episodes His other screenwriting credits include the scripts for films such as The Premature Burial 1962 , Burn, Witch, Burn 1962 , The Haunted Palace 1963 , and The Masque of the Red Death 1964.When Beaumont was 34, he began to suffer from ill health and developed a baffling and still unexplained condition that caused him to age at a greatly increased rate, such that at the time of his death at age 38 in 1967, he had the physical appearance of a 95 year old man Beaumont was survived by his wife Helen, two daughters, and two sons, one of whom, Christopher, is also a writer.Beaumont s work was much respected by his colleagues, and he counted Ray Bradbury, Harlan Ellison, Richard Matheson, Robert Bloch, and Roger Corman among his friends and admirers Valancourt Books

    Seems astonishing to me that I just discovered Charles Beaumont, and by accident, at that I d just traded in a backpack full of tomes of which I was ready to let go, in Ballard s Twice Sold Tales, and finding nothing in their store that matched my to read booklist, I pulled this one out at random and quickly noticed the accolades from Bradbury A week or so later, when I finally picked this up, I had to force myself to slow down, though I d gulp 3 or 4 stories at a go, anyway I caught styles of B [...]

    A wonderful collection from a writer who died way too early at the age of thirty eight He was one of the writers ofThe Twilight Zone along with Serling and Matheson Three of his tales he adapted for episodes are in this book.Some inventive ideas here a vampire seeing a psychiatrist because of his problems being one of the undead, a world where people are tube born and heterosexuality is a crime, a physicist testing the old paradox about going back in time to kill your father before you were conc [...]

    a good selection of some of the best stories from each of the short story collections the hunger and other stories, yonder, and night ride and other journeys a good choice for somebody who doesn t want to commit themselves to charles beaumont right away i myself recommend just buying the three collections themselves but if this is all you read of beaumont it will be worth it

    The only reason I give this four stars instead of five is because it includes stories that you could pick up in Beamon ts previous collections Night Ride, Yonder, and Hunger All the stories in here are quality works, fantastic material for fans of the odd, mysterious, and creepy.
