And while looking for that on Amazon, I discovered that there's a series of Hell House novels, not by Matheson.
I had to look it up after reading this. Interesting. Each is listed as having 48 pages, and they're published by IDW Publishing, which is an independent comic book publisher. (They've recently acquired the Star Trek license, incidentally, and have started putting out new Trek comics.)

I like Matheson a lot. As part of the "required reading" in On Writing Horror, I ordered Richard Matheson: Collected Stories, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. I haven't read them yet; they're in my enormous "must read" pile.

I've read Hell House and I Am Legend, and I've enjoyed the films he's written, too. Most recently, I enjoyed The Comedy of Terrors and The Raven together on this set (which has apparently gone out of print ).
