“When I think of Beaumont’s prose, I think of felicity of language; it’s very fluent, very precise, very clear, extremely readable. There is a signature.”

Roger Anker, Editor of The Twilight Zone Scripts of Charles Beaumont

Stories from a master of speculative fiction…

Originally published in 1960, NIGHT RIDE, AND OTHER JOURNEYS was Charles Beaumont’s third collection of stories. It includes one of his most famous tales, “The Howling Man,” which Beaumont later adapted into an equally famous Twilight Zone episode, along with “Perchance to Dream” and “Song for a Lady.”

A prolific and influential American author of speculative fiction, Charles Beaumont (1929–1967) was known for short stories in the horror and science fiction subgenres, as well as for his work for television and film.

Directed by Susan Hanfield, this collection is narrated by Stefan Rudnicki, Paul Boehmer, and the one and only Harlan Ellison (who was a personal friend of Mr. Beaumont himself!). So dive into the weird and wild, and start your journey today.
