Richard Matheson (I Am Legend, Nightmare at 20,000 Feet) 1926-2013

There wouldn’t have been any Stephen King, the Twilight Zone, or one of Will Smith’s biggest hits (I am Legend) without American writer Richard Matheson.

Matheson is responsible for some of the most iconic set pieces of the last 60 years in literature: killer dolls, the post-apocalyptic city, monsters only you can see, and assorted other things that go bump in the night.
