No, I don't know that story. What did Richard have to say?
Well, it's a minor story, but nice. In the early 80s, I was (of course) an avid reader of Twilight Zone magazine. They did an interview with Matheson and in it he talked about the unproduced third Kolchak movie, Night Killers. Being young and impetuous, I sent him off a letter in care of the magazine, asking if he had any remaining copies he'd be willing to sell. I never expected to get a reply. In short order, though, I received a very nice letter back, explaining that he's a working writer and once he's done with a project he just moves right on to the next, and if he did have a copy he didn't have time to search for it. He also included a compliment to TZ magazine. I was quite happy that he had been nice enough to reply and I still have the letter.

And, of course, I now have a hardcover edition of all three scripts (which set me back $150), which I found out after I received it is a signed and numbered edition. Although there's one page missing from Night Killers....
