RIP Richard Matheson

Postby pip » Tue Jun 25, 2013 8:25 am

Richard Matheson , One of the great Scifi writers has died at 87 . A good innings and he left a few of the best Scifi books behind him. I Am Legend is still one of the best post apocalyptic books ever written.

RIP.
Of all the forces in the universe, the hardest to overcome is the force of habit. Gravity is easy-peasy by comparison.

Love and laughter you see are the new currency

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

I only read I Am Legend relatively recently. :(
