Tell me Matheson himself changed the title to Somewhere in Time. Few days ago i was browsing the World Fantasy Award winners bookshelf wanting to buy some rated fantasy. I saw Somewhere in Time and planned to buy just because it was the only thing the bookstore had of Matheson until i saw they finally got a new version I Am Legend.
The story appealed to me. The timeless love thing.
