He Is Legend

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon in the Ides of March than patronizing an independent book store and meeting a living legend?

At Dark Delicacies bookstore in Burbank, earlier this afternoon, I attended a booksigning by Richard Matheson. Chances are if you watched any science fiction or fantasy on the large or small screen from the fifties or sixties, you saw some of Matheson's works. That's on top of his novels that are still being adapted into movies today; his novel I AM LEGEND has been adapted for movies three times, most recently in the Will Smith vehicle a little over a year ago.

That's cool that you got to see one of your favorite authors.
