RIP Richard Matheson

Quote:
The great Richard Matheson has passed.

The man who invented the template for what would evolve – with some un-authorized assistance from George A. Romero – into the modern zombie and who re-invented what a vampire could be with his 1954 novella I AM LEGEND, defined the parameters of dark fantasy fiction, working in all mediums and developing a style and evolving thematic arc that carried into his final writings.
He was 87.

This is yet another big name that is now gone.

2013 doesn't seem to be a good year for many popular writers......

He was a great fantasist...a great writer of the imagination.

My thought exactly--there sure seems to be quite a few authors dying lately...

He was just phenomenal. I'm amazed at the number of friends I have who don't know his name, but instantly recognize his work.

Oh No! Sad news!

Please read something from him in remembrance. I'd suggest his first published story - Born of Man and Woman:

I really enjoyed I am Legend when I read it last year. I will have to look at some of his other works when I finish this year's challenge list.

I've only read I am Legend, but he also wrote many TV and movie screenplays.

He wrote the Star Trek TOS episode "The Enemy Within," for instance.

RIP sir. A life well lived.

He was also responsible for quite a few Twilight Zone episodes, including the classic "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet."
