Science fiction author and screenwriter Richard Matheson died this week, having contributed immensely to the sci-fi canon with some of the best loved episodes of The Twilight Zone and the novel I Am Legend (the source for the Will Smith movie of the same name, as well as two earlier film incarnations – The Omega Man starring Charlton Heston and The Last Man on Earth starring Vincent Price).

Matheson also wrote What Dreams May Come, the basis for the Robin Williams film of the same name, and which coincidentally shares some similar imagery with my novel Immaculate Deception.

This is a great clip because it speaks to Matheson’s own legacy, but could be translated as the ultimate hope for most anyone who writes fiction of any genre.
