Richard Matheson: 1926-2013

Writer Richard Matheson died over the weekend at the age of 87. You might not immediately know the name, but you’ll know his writing: episodes of The Twilight Zone, Star Trek, Combat, Lawman, Studio 57, Bourbon Street Beat, and Cheyenne, The Omega Man, The Incredible Shrinking Man, The Raven, Trilogy of Terror (which scared the hell out of me when I was a kid – that doll!), Duel, and many, many others.

Here’s a 7 part interview he did with the Archive of American Television where he talks about his long career. (I’ve embedded the first part below.)
