¡Feliz Cumpleaños, Richard Matheson!

Born February 20, 1926. Died June 23, 2013.

He was a key contributor to such TV anthologies as The Twilight Zone and Night Gallery, not to mention the author of I Am Legend, one of the first novels to drag the vampire legend kicking and screaming into the twentieth century. One of the first science fiction stories that I was ever taught about in school was a Matheson story. Indeed, it could be said that Matheson was a key influence on my life, even when he wasn't trying to be. And I am quite sure that I was not the only sci-fi fan that he influenced.
