Writer Richard Matheson has died. Matheson’s influence on horror, television and film was incredible–from, “I Am Legend” to episodes of The Twilight Zone, The Night Stalker, The Martian Chronicles to writing Roger Corman’s Poe films to films based on his stories like The Last Man on Earth, The Omega Man, I Am Legend, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Duel and The Box. The Guardian and io9 have obituaries. Fangoria posted its 2011 cover story on Matheson. The Archive of American Television interviews Matheson here.
