Who Goes There? by Joseph W. Campbell
__________________
I met her, fifteen years ago; I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding; and not even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this cow, with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes... the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach her, and then another seven trying to keep her locked up because I realized that what was living behind that cow's eyes was purely and simply... evil.

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson.

Wow. I loved that story. It was way better than the movie, but you can't compare the two. If you just watch the movie, it is still a great film, but the story in the book is a lot more psychological and I love that.

Fantastic story that has only ever been very loosely adapted to the screen, and usually quite poorly at that.
