Matheson's BEARDLESS WARRIORS and a New Story by Ray

In 2015, Gauntlet Press will be publishing a two-book set, Richard Matheson's fine World War II novel, THE BEARDLESS WARRIORS, and a companion book called BROTHERS IN ARMS, comprised of stories by other writers inspired by Matheson's novel. Ray's fans will be happy to know that a story written by him and previously unpublished, "Final Day", will be included in BROTHERS IN ARMS. There will be three diffferent editions of the set, one selling for $75, one for $125 and one for $500, priced according to the size of the edition and the number of authors signatures included. Orders will start to be taken on January 1, 2015.

On a personal note, THE BEARDLESS WARRIORS (based on Matheson's own experiences as a foot soldier during the Second World War) is one of the best war novels I have ever read. I remember giving a copy to my Dad, who also served during WWII, and he agreed the book was excellent.

Here is a link to more information about the book and how to order:

As much as I would love a copy of "Final Day" - I can't justify the price tag. $75.00 for a story?

This story is listed in the "Unpublished Stories" appendix in Ray Bradbury: The Life of Fiction. This list of "unpublished stories" makes my head swim. Perhaps someday these will all see the light of day.

Today, Gauntlet Press provided the following update on its forthcoming publication of THE BEARDLESS WARRIORS by Richard Matheson, and the companion book BROTHERS IN ARMS. The two books will published in 2018. Better late than never! And BROTHERS IN ARMS will include the previously unpublished Ray Bradbury story, "Final Day":

"We have just one author left to sign the tipsheets for Beardless Warriors/Brothers in Arms. Brothers in Arms is an anthology which constitutes the second book in the two book set. It contains a previously unpublished story by Ray Bradbury, compliments of his bibliographer Donn Albright, and two previously unpublished short stories by Richard Matheson. We hope to have the two-set edition available this coming summer."

Here is an update on the forthcoming BEARDLESS WARRIORS/BROTHERS IN ARMS books (the latter book including a previously unpublished Ray Bradbury story), from today's Gauntlet Press newsletter:

"We are in the midst of laying out Richard Matheson's two book Beardless Warriors/Brothers in Arms set. Please note that a number of editions of the book are sold out. We have 6 lettered copies remaining. With all of the other signatures (plus Bradbury and Matheson) this will be a unique collectible."
