The Shrinking Man by Richard Matheson
Paperback – Fawcett Gold Medal – 1962
“The man’s name was Scott Carey. Eighteen months earlier, he had begun to shrink, and no doctor in the world could stop it.
He was seven inches tall the week the door swung shut, and the cellar of his house became a vast prison. He was six inches tall the day the Black Widow spider swung down from the shadows and came scrabbling across the concrete at him on giant, spiny legs….” The basis for the movie The Incredible Shrinking Man.
