Richard Matheson

I love the 'Twilight Zone', with Shatner in the plane and the furry gremlin on the wing. 

Richard Matheson passed away yesterday.  He was 87.  Whether it was in books, TV, or in film - he knew how to tell a story.  Here is an article from NPR's, Bill Chappel about his life: http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/06/24/195317782/author-richard-matheson-i-am-legend-writer-dies-at-87  

"Duel" was a tight story directed by some kid named, Spielberg.

Three time-stamped versions of the same timeless story...

 "The Last Man on Earth"

"Omega Man"

"I Am Legend"

Richard Matheson.  

He was Legend.

Thoughts & prayers to his family & friends.

Godspeed, sir.
