Richard Matheson (1926-2013)

I never got around to reading a book by Richard Matheson. His novel I am Legend (1954) has been on my reading list forever, and somehow it never feels like the right time. I also never saw The Omega Man and have managed to skip seeing the 2007 film with Will Smith.
So I have no personal tidbit or insight into the man’s work to write about. And I probably wouldn’t have written this post at all if it hadn’t been for Michael Swanwick and his post on this US author and screenwriter. Without it, I probably would not have known Richard Matherson also wrote Twilight Zone scripts and short stories. Am definitely going to look for the short stories!
