Imagine a future in which the sport of boxing has gone high-tech. Human boxers have been replaced by massive humanoid robots. And former champions of flesh-and-blood are obsolete . . . .
Richard Matheson's classic short story is now the basis for Real Steel, a gritty, white-knuckle film starring Hugh Jackman. But "Steel," which was previously filmed as a powerful episode of the original Twilight Zone television series, is just one of over a dozen unforgettable tales in this outstanding collection, which includes two new stories that have never appeared in any previous Matheson collection. Also featured is a bizarre satirical fantasy, "The Splendid Source," that was turned into an episode of The Family Guy.
Richard Matheson was recently inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame. Steel demonstrates once again the full range of his legendary imagination.

i love it
I love this book and I love the movie :)
Not as expected
I liked the movie based on the short story included here. Really the only thing they have in common is robot boxing. The story is ok but left you wanting more. The other stories are very much a mixed bag. Some were awful, some readable, but none were great. This was certainly not worth eight bucks, maybe it is worth two, if you are really hard up. But there so many better books out there for the same or better price.
