Earthbound is a 1982 novel by Richard Matheson, originally published under the pen name Logan Swanson. Matheson removed his name from the original publication by Playboy Press as a result of the publishers' severe editing of the manuscript.[1] It was later reprinted under Matheson's name in the United Kingdom in 1989. In 2005, the novel was reprinted in its entirety and released in the United States for the first time by Tor Books.[2]

The novel tells the story of a couple who leave Los Angeles to vacation at a remote beach cottage on Long Island. There, they are met by a mysterious woman, and memories of their early marriage.
