Who's Richard Matheson?
Okay, that just hurts . . .
The Incredible Shrinking Man, I Am Legend, The Night Stalker, Somewhere in Time, What Dreams May Come, Duel, A Stir of Echoes, Hell House, TOS's "The Enemy Within," numerous classic episodes of original Twilight Zone, including "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" and "Steel" . . . .
Basically, one of the most influential sf and horror writers of the last century. Trust me, you've seen something written by Matheson or based on one of his books or stories. He also scripted several of the old Roger Corman "Poe" movies starring Vincent Price.
(Full disclosure: I've been Richard's editor for over twenty years now.)
