In October 2012, Richard Matheson found a journal he started in 1993, in which he wrote a page a day on and off for several years. He eventually put it away, adding to it again from 2003-2005. This journal, MUSINGS is the closest to being a Richard Matheson autobiography. He discusses his youth, college years, wartime experiences, how he feels about his short stories and novels, and much more. It's written in a conversational tone, with self-deprecating humor and keen insight.

In MUSINGS Matheson refers to an unpublished novel he had written around the same time he wrote HUNGER AND THIRST (his first novel). He found the novel, LEAVE YESTERDAY ALONE, which adds even more autobiographical material.

Matheson wrote LEAVE YESTERDAY ALONE during his college years, and it deals with his experiences at college, in novel form, in the same fashion that much of BEARDLESS WARRIORS deals with his war experience in the form of fiction.

Both MUSINGS and LEAVE YESTERDAY ALONE are being published together in one volume.
